🍇: 100% Lambrusco Salamino
Farming: Practicing organic - all the agriculture is done organically and natural vinification and re-fermentations take place in bottle.
Farming/Vinification: Natural fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Carbonation using modified charmat method. (The yeast and sugar cause a second fermentation in the bottle, which is held under pressure so the carbon dioxide from the fermentation is forced into the wine). Minimal sulfur additions and no filtering or fining.
About the Winemaker: On the outskirts of Modena in the tiny village of Campogalliano is the small estate of Podere il Saliceto. Gian Paolo Isabella is most known as a decorated Muay Thai champion though he is a gentle winemaker both in the vineyard and the cellar. In 2005 he and his brother in law Marcello were driven to follow their passion for all things wine and founded the 4 hectare estate they now operate together. As producers of lambrusco they are dedicated to working with the classic local grape varieties such as Lambrusco di Sorbara and Salamino but they also work with the uncommon Malbo Gentile variety.
Notes: The most delicious sparkling red wine you've ever tasted. Creamy, blackberry and blueberry, violet notes, dry.
