The name Ombra Di Pantera is derived from the spirit of the panther as a symbol of Italian luxury and the phrase ombra de vin (“wine’s shadow”), a reference to the Venetian wine traders who once followed the shadow of St. Mark’s Campanile around the Piazza San Marco to protect their wares from the Mediterranean sun.  However, unlike the name’s “shady” origins, the Glera grapes in the brand’s Prosecco Superiore Brut Millesimato DOCG 2016 are hand-harvested on the sunny slopes between Conegliano and Valdobbiadene—the region of northeastern Italy known as the cradle of Prosecco, where only the grapes worthy of the coveted DOCG status are grown.  From there, the wine is crafted in bianco, developing its fine, persistent perlage over a sixty-day period.  The bottled vintage has a potent, ultra fine, and fruity bouquet with a distinct aroma of golden apples set against a floral background.  Dry, fresh, and light in the mouth, it has a soft, well-balanced flavor with good aromatic length and a memorable, fruity finish.  Produced from the oldest, finest Italian vineyards, Ombra Di Pantera is the timeless way to say, “I love you.”
