Lancers was launched in 1944 after Henry Behar visited Portugal with the purpose of finding a rosé wine that would appeal to the American palate. The wine was named Lancers in tribute to the painting “Las Lanzas” by Velasquez, a favorite of Mr. Behar. In addition to this lively, aromatic rosé, Lancers has created a new Moscato. Grape Varieties 100% Moscato Color Bright straw yellow with gold highlights. Bouquet Clean and light, with peach and melon aromas.

What do you get when you combine a half-century of winemaking expertise, the dramatic landscape and terroir of northern Italy, and a profound enjoyment of the good things in life? The answer is simple: the CAVIT COLLECTION, source of America’s #1 Italian wine. Through the years, savvy wine lovers have come to depend on the CAVIT COLLECTION as their favorite “go-to” source for stylish, elegant and versatile wines, perfect for any occasion. This stellar range of high-quality, food-friendly wines is produced at the Cavit winery in Trentino, a picturesque landscape of mountains, lakes, apple orchards and medieval castles. Vineyards in this region enjoy the warming effects of the "Ora del Garda," a dry, balmy breeze that sweeps across Lake Garda and protects the fruit from external moisture and disease. Contrastingly cool evenings promote rich, intense aromas and flavors in the grapes. Winemaking is overseen by Anselmo Martini, a 20+ year industry veteran and one of northern Italy’s top enologists. Production Area The Oltrepò Pavese, which means “beyond the Po River,” accounts for approximately 40,000 acres of vineyard planted in the southwestern part of Lombardy, Italy, on the right bank of the Po river, in the province of Pavia. Here the landscape of steeply rolling hills comprises limestone and clay-based soil, well-suited to the cultivation of vines. Only recently have the wines of Lombardy begun to acquire a well-deserved recognition that extends beyond regional borders. Traditionally these wines were sold in local country restaurants and taverns, along the banks of the Ticino and Po rivers. Grape Varieties 100% Moscato Vinification Cold fermentation, including brief skin contact, is conducted under rigorously controlled conditions in order to facilitate maximum extraction of aromas. Refinement takes place in stainless steel tanks, with early bottling designed to maintain the wine’s naturally fresh bouquet. Color Pale yellow with green highlights Bouquet Notes of apricot, white peach and sage Taste Refreshing, lively and superbly balanced, with a vibrant frizzante quality and wonderful sweetness. Alcohol 7.5% Serving Suggestions Enjoy with flavorful appetizers, cheeses and spicy dishes. Wonderful with fruit and chocolate.
