A careful selection of grapes grown in the best areas of the D.O.C. zone
In bottles, stored at between 15 – 17 ° C, the yeast starts to multiply as it consumes the sugar in the wine. This increases the pressure in the bottle to around 2 atmospheres.This process creates an environment that preserves the youthfulness of the wine and develops a pressure that makes it semi-sparkling. The yeasts, deposited at the bottom of the bottle, enrich the product by producing the typical smell of bread crust
In the glass it has a beautiful pale yellow color and a creamy foam. The aromas are complex, reminiscent of herbs, hay, dried flowers, quince and apricot. On the palate, the yeast softens the wine’s traditional acidity while ensuring its fresh, citrusy flavor, and enhancing its well-balanced and elegant structure
To serve the wine at its best it is advisable to invert the bottle before uncorking. Serve at 6-8°C
Perfect with soups, risotto with asparagus and canapés with truffles
Lambrusco has always been drunk as a semi-sparkling wine; this is because its grapes ripened late and, consequently, with the first cold weather in the autumn and winter, the fermentation of the must came to a halt, leaving a wine that was slightly sweet and mellow.
