Lambrusco (NV)


Terroir: From the foothills and plains of the Reggio Emilia and Modena zones. Fertile, deep and medium-mixture grounds, 800 feet above sea level.

Vinification: The pressing and brief maceration of select grapes is followed by the fermentation of the must at controlled temperature. A second fermentation, using the Charmat method, imparts the characteristic sparkling note.
