About This Wine:
Light pink evanescent froth and fine and persistent perlage. The color is light red with violet hues, the perfume of flowers (violets) and red fruits is ample and intense, and the flavor is full and dry with a fruity aroma and an engaging slightly acidulous aftertaste.

Pair with Charcuterie, pasta dishes with complex sauces and rich condiments, red meats and fish. Excellent with fried fish and vegetable dishes.

Terroir:

This 100% Lambrusco di Sorbara is sourced born from a 12.5 acre vineyard in the “Cristo” locality of Sorbara, the original vineyard owned by Cavicchioli family. Sorbara is a naturally low yielding grape variety which flowers with great difficulty and the vine is often sterile. For this reason it is planted in the vineyard in alternating rows with the more vigorous Salamino (which makes a wine that is similar in color and body to Sorbara) to aid fertilization and growth. Therefore up to 40% of Salamino is allowed in the Sorbara D.O.C.

Vinification:

In this rare bottling only Sorbara fruit is included. Hand-harvested fruit is de-stemmed and crushed and the must and skins are transferred to a temperature–controlled stainless steel tank where they are left to macerate at 45-55°F for 3-5 days. Only 50% of the free-run juice (the “flower”) then undergoes a secondary fermentation in autoclave at 55-60°F to achieve effervescence.

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"The shy nose slowly reveals Mediterranean scrub, citrus and a whiff of Spanish broom. The aromas give way to the linear palate offering sour cherry, citrus and a fennel note alongside fresh acidity." - Kerin O’Keefe (4/1/2020)
