About Quarticello Azienda Agricola

Emilia Romagna, Italy

The Quarticello farm is located in Montecchio Emilia near the river Enza at the foot of the Emilian-Tuscany Appennines. We try to make expressive wines from native grapes like Lambrusco and Malvasia di Candia, minimizing use of sulfur dioxide and all actions that can somehow change the expression of the characteristics of native varieties bred in the heart of the territories of origin.
