Produced by Cantina Sancio of Riccardo Sancio in Spotorno (SV - Italy), "Lady Chatterley" is a sparkling wine made exclusively from 100% Lumassina grapes harvested from the vineyard in Spotorno. This charming town is situated along the Ligurian coast, just east of Savona, Italy. The wine is meticulously crafted using the classic method (champenoise), with a minimum aging of 24 months sur lies and a brut dosage. Enclosed with wire caging over TCA-free Mystik corks, tailored for sparkling wines with low or no sulphites.
The label of "Lady Chatterley" pays homage to the artistic scenery of Spotorno and its fanciful name, inspired by the time author D.H. Lawrence spent a year in the town before penning 'Lady Chatterley's Lover'. With production in micro-batches, this wine is available in very limited quantities and is exclusively imported to Oregon by Delfino Fine Wines.
