Lambrusco Ottocentonero (NV)

Albinea Canali

Terroir: Rich in italian tradition, the name ‘Ottocento’ evokes Italy’s romanticism toward the 1800s. The word for black, ‘nero,’ is a reference to the wine’s nearly opaque deep purple hues. From the Canali family, one of Italy’s leading producers of sparkling wines, this product combines the flavor of a dry Lambrusco with the full sparkle. This sparkling wine is made from Lambrusco and Lancellotta grapes grown in the Canali vineyards in Emilia-Romagna.

Vinification: The pressing of the grapes is followed by a maceration at low temperature (12-15°C) for 3-4 days in order to extract the color and enhance the typical fruit-forward characters of Lambrusco. After racking, the juice completes its fermentation in pressurized temperature controlled vats to develop its natural sparkle.

Additional Information

Deep ruby red with violet reflections. Semi-sparkling and balanced with rich berry flavors. An ideal complement to rich foods, Ottocentonero pairs well with baked pastas, roasts and grilled meats as well as spicy fare. Serve chilled. Ottocentonero is rich, vivacious and round on the palate.
