The Collalto family can trace their ownership of vineyards in the region to a document dated 958 AD, when Berengarius II, King of Italy, leased the county of Lovadina to Count Rambaldo I, the founder of the Collalto family. Now the estate comprises 1,500ha, 150 of which are under vine. 65 of these are planted solely for Prosecco. Principessa Isabella Collalto de Cröy inherited the vines from her father, and now personally runs the estate. The vines (10 to 50 years old) are planted on marl, clay and limestone, at altitudes ranging between 200 and 300m. 65% of the annual production is Prosecco Superiore Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG. There are hints of ripe white peaches on the nose, and, on the palate, there’s a delicious rounded, creamy texture.
