Biodynamic

Wine made from grapes grown organically using natural composting techniques and special preparations of herbal sprays while following the astronomical calendar.


Tasting Notes

A blend of Salamino di Santa Croce, Sorbara, and Pignolesco, all varieties indigenous to Lambrusco, who are co-fermented. The name of the wine refers to the lack of temperature control while bottle fermenting in the cellar. Complex, with citrus, stone fruits, herbaceousness, racy acidity, and a spice component, the wine shows through the fine bubbles. Absolutely a sparkler for the table. Serve with chestnut flour pasta and pancetta.

Staff Pick Notes

Is "Riunite on ice (that's nice!)" what you think of when Lambrusco comes to mind? Please exit 1982 immediately and enter the twenty-first century, where old-school winemaking techniques employed by Gianluca Bergianti are the name of the game. Everything about this low-fi wine is the opposite of what you may think Lambrusco should taste like, but you may be channeling the mass produced quantity-over-quality bottles of yore. This wine starts out tart, DRY, and earthy. Cranberry, dried cherry, and pomegranate are the dominant red fruits. Just enough tannic grip to remind you this is a light-bodied red. The sparkle comes from the Champagne rather than Charmat method, where bubbles develop in-bottle. Now that's nice!
