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.
The Wine Odyssey2018 vintage
The 2018 vintage began with a rainy and cold late winter. From February through March the temperatures were lower than usual and contributed to a later bud break. Thankfully the summer conditions in June and July were ideal and allowed for healthy maturation. Late into summer the rains came; on one side they were desperately needed due to drought conditions the previous few vintages, on the other side the winery was concerned about disease that comes from the rainfall. Harvest came the first week of September and was successful due to a dry September. Grapes were able to fully mature and the quantity and quality was on par with recent vintages.
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 lasagna.

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.
