The Collaltos carry on a family legacy as owners and tenants of 3200 acres of land north of Venice given to their family over one thousand years ago. The signs of history, culture and nature co-exist with farming practices that fully respect what is a centuries-long tradition passed down by the Collalto family. 160 acres of farmland are given over to vineyards for the production of Borgoluce wines and sparkling wines. The Valdobbiadene D.O.C.G. region is home to the vineyards of Borgoluce’s finest Prosecco.
The 2019 Prosecco Treviso Rosé Gaiante Brut is so pretty and floral in the glass. This feminine and lifted effort shows fresh roses, wild strawberries, hints of peach and white smoke. It’s silky and enveloping with a noticeable inner sweetness balanced by juicy acids, with notes of ripe cherry and spice amassing toward the close. This finishes fresh yet on a note of hard red candies that lingers long. It’s worth seeking out and also a great value. Also of note here is that this blend of 85% Pinot Nero and 15% Glera was one of the first bottles from the new Prosecco Rosé DOC category to cross my path. (Lot 22M20)
