Vinified as a fully red wine before finishing fermentation in the bottle for the bubbles. This is an old-school, rustic Lambrusco for those that pine for the wine the way it used to be. A blend of Lambrusco Maestri and Lambrusco Grasparossa fermented on their skins for a week before being pressed off to vat. The wine is then transferred to bottle with a little must for the second fermentation. Sanguine, earthy and bone dry, it demands a nice piece of salumi or two.

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.
