Principessa

Fresh, fragrant and enveloping

Fruity and crystal clear, Cantina Luretta’s most popular Traditional Method is a sparkling wine that knows how to make the everyday memorable. A 100% Chardonnay sparkling, aged on the lees for up to 24 months.

Effervescent freshness

Any day is a good day to toast. Principessa celebrates the pleasure of being together, inviting you to capture those moments that, like bubbles, are evanescent. A floral sparkling, immediate, fruity, but never sweet. Principessa is a sparkling wine meant to turn ordinary events into days to remember: it does not need great occasions to uncork, Principessa is a wine for today.
Aged on lees between 18 and 24 months, Cantina Luretta’s best-selling sparkling wine is produced with a low dosage which allows maintaining the perfect balance between structure and clarity. Simplicity, here, does not mean a lack of originality. The opposite: Principessa is a refined wine, which captures the essence of Chardonnay grown on the calcareous marls of Colli Piacentini and expresses its details in a delicate way.

Conviviality

For this is the truth about our soul, he thought, who fish-like inhabits deep seas and plies among obscurities threading her way between the boles of giant weeds, over sun-flickered spaces and on and on into gloom, cold, deep, inscrutable; suddenly she shoots to the surface and sports on the wind-wrinkled waves; that is, has a positive need to brush, scrape, kindle herself, gossiping.

history

Principessa’s origins remain ambiguous even to those of us who have been making it for thirty years. Initially, it was not a wine meant to be sold, but a product created in extremely limited quantities, to be given as a present to friends, relatives, and loyal customers. After years of experimentation with the Traditional Method, however, our Principessa has evolved to have a well-defined character, different from other sparkling wines in circulation.

In the mid 2000’s, thanks to a renewal of the winery’s machinery and to an ever-increasing demand, Principessa became the sparkling wine we know, characterized by the transparent bottle, elegance with a delicate touch, fresh and immediate taste. A refined wine, but not exclusive. Enveloping, yet perfect for the daily aperitif ritual. In few years tens of thousands of bottles were sold and Principessa became the sparkling symbol of Emilia Romagna.
