Julia Lazzara was our great grandmother. Julia's ancestors and her husband emigrated to New York where the latter did fine marble work on the city's first skyscrapers. The label design, the style of wine, and of course the name, pay homage to our Italian ancestors.
Vibrant red berry fruit, complemented with apple and pear aromatics. Its bubbles complement the fresh, balanced, and fruit forward nature of this wine.
The grapes used in this blend were picked in late September to obtain the perfect balance between acidity and sugar.
The base wine was fermented cool to preserve aromatics with no malolactic fermentation done in order to maintain freshness.
The secondary ferment took place in a stainless steel Charmat tank to produce elegant bubbles.
