Lambrusco Reggiano DOC Concerto

Lambrusco Reggiano DOC Concerto

Story of the Wine:

It is now surely the time for Lambrusco to return to its origins, which is a dry, full sparkling red wine. The multi award winning Concerto is a wine that has been made by Medici with a view to returning the reputation of Lambrusco to its former glory. It is a single vineyard wine and with lower yields to enable greater concentration and depth. The Lambrusco (Italian for ‘wild grape’) variety is really a group of 10 varieties found mostly in Emilia. The Salamino variety is the most widely planted and is generally the most full bodied and aromatic of the Lambrusco varieties. Within the estate is an old Franciscan monastery which has been preserved and probably part of the estate formerly belonged to this monastery.
