Type: Sparkling Wine
Grape: Salamino di Santa Croce/Sorbara/Pignolesco
In 2008, Gianluca Bergianti founded Terrevive with 16 hectares in the village of Gargallo di Carpi just outside Modena, operating according to strict biodynamic principles since day one. He has since expanded to 35 hectares, growing cereals, vegetables, fruits, herbs, and, of course, grapes. Gianluca’s commitment to low cellar intervention and to the traditional method for producing Lambrusco results in highly unique wines of intense personality and riveting acidity.
Both a wine and a mission statement, “No Autoclave” blends three indigenous varieties of Lambrusco: Salamino di Santa Croce, Sorbara, and Pignolesco, farmed organically/biodynamically, which are co-fermented. Bubbles are created within each bottle via the addition of a small amount of unfermented grape must to the dry wine, which the leftover yeasts eat over the course of a few months.
A highly aromatic sparkling red wine, with tangy notes of tangerine, earthy cherry, wild herbs, and Szechuan peppercorn
