Type: Sparkling Wine
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.
Named after the patron saint of wine, “San Vincent” is made entirely from the local Sorbara, which may in fact be related to Pinot Meunier, according to Gianluca. This bottling shows well-delineated, lifted notes of cassis, raspberry, licorice, and plenty of the wild herbs and bright acidity present in all of Gianluca’s wines.
