Concerto Reggiano Lambrusco 2019

Emilia-Romagna, ItalyThe Medici family has been producing quality sparkling wine since the beginning of the Emilia Romagna's sparkling appellation of DOP Lambrusco di Modena. The winery today is in the hands of the 5th generation. Concerto is said to be the world’s first single vineyard vintage Lambrusco. If you eschew Lambrusco because of the sweet, candied wines of your past, give this a try. This comes from the organically farmed Tenuta La Rampata vineyard in Reggio Emilia province. This is a blend of 85/15 Lambrusco Salamino and Lambrusco Ancelotta, the former a tannic and deeply coloured grape and the latter a gentler, slightly sweeter grape, used to soften the blend. Opaque in hue, with swings of dark balsamic, wild blackberry, black cherry, earthy plum, and grippy thorns in this robust, single-vineyard Lambrusco. The 10 g/L RS is balanced off by brisk, tart acidity, and a slight effervescence.
