Lodi Corazza 2020 Barbera Frizzante, Colli Bolognesi DOC, Emilia-Romagna, Italy 

The Lodi family has been farming their land in the heart of Bologna since 1877, always using integrated farming practices to preserve the land's natural biodiversity. Since the 1950s, when the Lodi Corazza house was fully formed through marriage, the family has focused on traditional vineyard practices and modern winemaking techniques to help position the  the farm and winery as a hub of tourism in the area. Today, bother and sister team Cesare and Silvia, work to maintain the family's legacy of always respecting the land's indigenous plants and species, while still focusing on producing wines that are true to the family's rich history of vinification in the area.

Winemaker: Cesare and Silvia Corazza

Varieties: 100% Barbera

Terroir: Grapes are harvested from the upper parts of the hilly vineyard, where clay is more dominant. Harvest occurs in two passes during the second half of Septmeber.

Vinification:  One week of maceration and fermentation at controlled temperature, undergoes malolactic fermentation. A short Charmat method, where second fermentation occurs in large, pressurized tanks, occurs over 2-3 months at controlled temperature.

Tasting Notes: Sour red cherries, fresh cranberry, hints of crushed sage leaf, this quaffable red sparkler is great on warm summer afternoons with a bit of charcuteries, or paired against a fresh handmade pie from your local pizza spot. Chuggable and fresh, it drinks like a light Lambrusco di Sorbara.  Serve chillllled. 

Dosage: 4.8 g/L

ABV: 12.8%

Want something yummy to wash down that pizza on your cheat day? This is IT. 

Frizzy, chilled red wine, bursting with brambly fruits and crushed oregano notes, few things can lean into baked Parmesan and stewed tomatoes better than this style of vino. And why shouldn’t it? The Lodi family has been farming their land in the heart of Bologna since 1877, always striving to preserve indigenous varieties that pair with the foods of the Emilia-Romagna region. To this end, they’ve always used integrated farming practices to preserve the land's natural biodiversity. 

Since the 1950s, when the Lodi Corazza house was fully formed through marriage, the family has focused on traditional vineyard practices and modern winemaking techniques to help position the farm and winery as a hub of tourism in the area. Today, brother and sister team Cesare and Silvia, work to maintain the family's legacy of always respecting the land's indigenous plants and species, while still focusing on producing wines that are true to the family's rich history of vinification in the area. 

This wine is made fizzy through Charmat method, where secondary fermentation occurs in large, pressurized tanks, occurs over 2-3 months (just like Prosecco, but this has less bubbles). This fun fizz should be enjoyed like a Lambrusco and is great with nearly any meal, especially tomato sauce Bolognesi, or as an aperitif alongside some cured cheese and meat. Either way, chill it down cold first!
