Fine Lambrusco wines since 1928. For three generations, the Cavicchioli family has focused on low yield, high-quality wines. This 100% Lambrusco di Sorbara is sourced born from a 12.5 acre vineyard in the “Cristo” locality of Sorbara, the original vineyard owned by Cavicchioli family. Sorbara is a naturally low yielding grape variety which flowers with great difficulty and the vine is often sterile. For this reason it is planted in the vineyard in alternating rows with the more vigorous Salamino (which makes a wine that is similar in color and body to Sorbara) to aid fertilization and growth. Therefore up to 40% of Salamino is allowed in the Sorbara D.O.C.In this rare bottling only Sorbara fruit is included. Hand-harvested fruit is de-stemmed and crushed and the must and skins are transferred to a temperature-controlled stainless steel tank where they are left to macerate for 3-5 days. Only 50% of the free-run juice (the “flower”) then undergoes a secondary fermentation in autoclave…
