About The Producer
The Veneto region of northeastern Italy is acclaimed for the production of high-quality Prosecco. LaLuca embraces this tradition with a combination of quality and affordability, produced in the highly regarded sub-region of Treviso where many of the best values in Prosecco originate.
LaLuca is sourced from some of the finest vines in Veneto's Treviso province in northeastern Italy. The Treviso province is known for its higher-quality Glera grapes, which are used to produce many of the premier Proseccos in Italy. The region features soils of alluvial origin, which include fine particles of silt and clay and larger components of sand and gravel. Grapes for LaLuca are harvested from hillside vineyards that are located 400 meters above sea level and benefit from southeastern exposures to maximize sunlight.
About the Wine
Delicately machine harvested throughout September, this Charmat method cuvée is blended from a Glera based white wine and a rosé wine made from Merlot. Secondary fermentation takes place over the course of 1 month in stainless steels tanks at a controlled temperature of 15°C. Once the desired pressure has been met, the wine is blast-chilled to stop fermentation and encourage settling. After a brief rest on the lees, bottling occurs and the product is shipped
for maximum freshness.
