Type: Sparkling Wine
Grape: Lambrusco Salamino
Luciano Saetti produces this lively Lambrusco from certified-organically farmed, hand-harvested fruit from 50-year-old vines. Crushed and spontaneously fermented in small steel tanks. Fermentation is spontaneous and is taken to complete dryness. Secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle, initiated by the addition of fresh grape must. The bottles are hand-riddled and -disgorged. No additives, including sulfur, are added at any stage of the process.
Deep ruby color with aromas of red berries, dried violets, subtle hints of sweet spices, and a slight meaty note. The wine is more frizzante than fully sparkling, with a smooth palate balanced by bright acidity and a slight tannic bite.
