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 within two years of vintage.
Wine Spectator2017 vintage
The 2017 vintage was characterized by a winter with low rainfall and a very hot summer. From February until the middle of April, temperatures were higher than average leading to an early blooming. In the second half of April, there was a sudden drop of temperature and as a result, caused frost related damages. Summer was extremely hot and dry, preventing vine diseases and allowing the grapes to remain healthy until the harvest. The harvest began on September 5th and was completed by September 26th. A relatively dry September allowed the harvest to be completed without interruption. The quality of grapes have produced a good 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.

- First single vineyard vintage Lambrusco
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.
