Bisson Glera, Marca Trevigiana, Vino Frizzante Bianco 2021
For many years now, Lugano has worked with his good friend Eli Spagnol of Torre Zecchei in the élite Valdobbiadene district of the Veneto. In a sea of vapid, overly sweet Prosecco, this friz- zante stands out proudly. Spagnol is in charge of a mere 30 ha, and our wine is hand-harvested from steep hillside vineyards in the DOCG zone of Valdobiaddene. The wine has just 2 g/l of residual sugar—a bone-dry offering that stands in sharp contrast to its many cloying peers. Clean, bright, and refreshing, it presents notes of acacia honey, white flowers, crunchy green apples, and tart nectarines atop a subtly mineral underlay.
