Grapes: Salamino Lambrusco
Concerto is the world’s first single vineyard vintage Lambrusco. A sparkling dry red wine, its lively bubbles are achieved through natural fermentation. Grapes from the prestigious Tenuta La Rampata vineyard in Reggio Emilia province are grown on Cordone Speronato (cordon trained and spur pruned) vines in clay soil with highly limited yields. The wine is best served at a temperature of 57 to 59 degrees Fahrenheit and should be consumed within two years of vintage.
Gambero Rosso2016 vintage
The 2016 vintage was characterized by a mild winter, with the exception of some days in January where in the early morning temperatures dropped to 23/24 °F, before raising again over 32 °F during the daytime. Rainfall and snow were also very rare between November and January. The hot summer, with low rainfall, prevented vine diseases; consequently allowing for less protection of the grapes in the vineyards. At the end of the summer, Val d’Enza area experienced a significant difference between day-time and night-time temperatures, which brought a great benefit to the wines in term of acidity and flavor profile. Harvesting for red grapes began on September 5th with Ancellotta and later on 9th with the Lambrusco grapes. The harvest was completed on the 1st of October. A dry September allowed for a good maturation of the grapes and helped in scheduling the harvest without any interruption as ideally planned. In terms of quantity, unfortunately there was a decrease of production across all vineyards.However, the quality of grapes came out great with a slightly increase both of acidity and alcohol. Wines produced will have great aromatic intensity, structure and alcoholic content.
Intensely brilliant and pure in both its ruby red color and aromatics, the wine shows a fresh strawberry, raspberry and cherry character. On the palate, dry yet fruity, round, fresh and lively notes are delectably harmonious. Acidity and tannins are perfectly balanced and the finish is clean.
Delicious with cured pork meats such as salami or mortadella or a variety of pasta dishes such as tortellini or lasagne.

about the grape +
Well-made Lambrusco can be refreshingly dry, with a lovely fragrance of red fruit and violets, a medium-bodied palate of fresh strawberries, a gentle spritz and a slight bitter almond finish.
