Lovo, Lovo Prosecco
Lovo Prosecco Millesimato.

 

Tasting Notes: For several years, Vittorio Lovo was (literally) the “face” of our Small Vineyards portfolio. He had an unforgettable smile. As a WWII veteran, he befriended American GI’s during the war, and until the day he passed away, saluted every Yankee he came across. He was good, loyal to the core, and – above all – an Italian winemaker. His son, Salvatore, now carries on their tradition, producing this immaculate, mineral-laden Proseccothat, for our money, is a torch-bearer of quality and expressiveness in a landscape of bubbly “sameness”. Made in small batches, only 1 bottle per plant.
