Solo is a sparkling dry red wine made using natural fermentation. Grapes come exclusively from the acclaimed Tenuta I Qurecioli vineyards, within the province of Reggio Emilia. Vines are grown in clay soil using Cordone Speronato (cordon trained and spur pruned) with restricted yields. The blend is 51% Ancellota and 49% Lambrusco Salamino. The wine is best served at a temperature of 57 to 59 degrees Fahrenheit within two years of vintage.
Blue Lifestyle2018 vintage
The 2018 vintage, for the Lambrusco area, was characterized by a winter with high rainfall and a very hot summer. The quality of grapes is on average good with an increase of concentration structure. We produced wines with a good aromatic intensity, good structure and with a good acidity in spite of the hot temperature during summer time.
A vivid, brilliant ruby red, the wine shows classic red fruit aromas. Though dry, the palate is fruity, round and exuberant with fine and persistent bubbles.
Delicious with cured pork meats such as salami or mortadella or a variety of pasta dishes such as tortellini or lasagne. Great also with pizza, BBQ and Mexican food. It's a very versatile wine.

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.
