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 are farmed organically 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 47 to 49 degrees Fahrenheit and should be consumed within two years of vintage.

Harvest Note
Analyzing the seasonal trend of the 2023 harvest campaign, it seems inevitable to make a comparison with last year, whose season appeared very extreme. Fortunately, the season appeared to be much more regular right from the early vegetative stages and characterized by temperatures more in line with seasonal averages. The same can be said for the level of precipitation, which fell with a decidedly more regular cadence compared to 2022. During the spring, however, frost phenomena were observed in various areas of Emilia during the months of March and April. The extremely heavy rains in the month of May, on one hand created good water reserves in the soil to support the summertime, but greatly reduced the possibility of maintaining adequate coverage from vine pathogens, giving rise to problems with powdery mildew infection. These phenomena, added together, led to a quantitatively smaller harvest, equal to almost 12% less compared to 2022. However the quality level was very good, characterized by excellent acidity, particularly sugary grapes and rich in polyphenols.
Tasting Note
Intense ruby red color with fresh red fruits on the nose. The wine shows lively notes of strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. Concerto 2023 is fresh, with a good amount of acidity, full of color and fragrant flavors.
Food Pairing
Delicious with a wide variety of foods, including pizza, 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.
