Lambrusco Grasparossa with a short 4 hours maceration. Refermented in the bottle and left on the lees.
Situated South of Modena, halfway between Parma and Bologna. In the hills above Modena and Reggio Emilia (Emilia Romagna) along the Secchia river is the project of Marco Bertoni, “Il Farneto”. A highland surrounded by badlands, a maze of canyons running on steep clay slopes. In the hopes to showcase a link between quality and care for the land and agriculture, Marco returned to establish his ideas in an area where industrialization had dominated during the 1970s and 80s. The farm planted the first grapes in the 90's. There are currently 5 hectares of wheat and 8 of grapes. Farming biodynamically since 2003 with the assistance of the two Donkeys, Esen and Olaf. All wines are fermented with native yeasts, and protected by minimal use of sulfites (between 18 and 40mg/l).
