Les 2 Raisins Introduce The Wines Of Conte Collalto

Les 2 Raisins are pleased to welcome the renowned producer Conte Collalto to their portfolio.

Collalto is a family winery with a rich history dating back to the Middle Ages. It is now masterfully led by Princess Isabella Collalto of CroŸ. Their emblematic San Salvatore castle is located in Susegana, in the Province of Treviso of the Veneto region.

Collalto produces approximately 850,000 bottles per year, including more than 500,000 Prosecco. Collalto also makes numerous still wines from international and local grape varieties. Collalto is recognized as a pioneer in the promotion of indigenous grape varieties of the region.

At this time, Les 2 Raisins import three non-sparkling wines from Collalto:

2018 Manzoni Bianco, IGP Colli Trevigiani ($22.95 in cs of 6)
Are you familiar with the white varietal Incrocio Manzoni Bianco? It is across between two vitis vinifera varietals, i.e. Riesling Renano and Pinot Bianco. Aromas and flavours of ripe juicy pear, white flowers, pineapple and minerality. Lush mouthfeel, with a crisp acidity.

2018 Rosabianco, IGP Manzoni Rosa 1.50 Marca Trevigiana ($22.95 in cs of 6)
A unique wine in that it is made with Incrocio Manzoni Bianco I.50, a rare varietal that is a cross between Trebbiano and Traminer Aromatico. Production includes skin-contact for 24 hours after pressing, fermentation in stainless steel and ageing on lees. Aromatic and enticing nose of litchee, rose and tropical fruit. Crisp acidity and soft texture.

2015 Torrai Cabernet Riserva, DOC Piave ($43.75 in cs of 6)
A Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Carmenere, Torrai takes its place as one of the most robust reds in our portfolio. Gambero Rosso and Wine Spectator have given this rich, powerful and very complex wine strong ratings. Blackcurrant, cedar, raspberries, blackberries, spices and well-integrated oak. Its firm tannins will pair beautifully with rich, stewed and roasted red meat dishes.
