Zanasi 2020 'Tradizione' Lambrusco di Sorbara, Emilia-Romagna, Italy

  • Farming: Organic, certified
  • Winemaker: Marco Uccellari
  • Grape Varieties: Sorbara
  • Soil / Terroir: Grown just north of Modena; the vines were planted in 2005. Altitude is less than 100 feet above sea level; the soil is a mixture of sand and clay.
  • Vinification: The grapes are normally picked in mid-September, pressed immediately, then fermented all the way from juice to sparkling wine in a single fermentation, using native yeasts; this takes about a month, at low temperature. (Special reinforced tanks are used, to withstand the pressure of the CO2.) After several months on the lees, the wine is filtered (but not fined) and bottled, with a small amount of residual sulfites.
  • Aging: 6 months in bottle
  • Tasting Notes: Bright pink in color with red and violet glints, with abundant bubbles when freshly poured, extremely appetizing to look at. Young and fresh, with aromas and flavors of strawberry, violets and rosemary.

  • Marco lives with his wife, Mara, on their property with his parents and aunts and uncles. They also produce excellent balsamic vinegar and raise the famous Vache Rosse cows which they use to produce farmstead Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. The manure from the cows is used as compost in the vineyards.
