About Lambrusco di Modena
Since 1800, the term Lambrusco di Modena has referred to red sparkling wines. This is chiefly due to the production method, which consisted of a blend of the various Lambrusco grapes. These grapes are grown in the province of Modena, the name of the region’s capital. The many different vines called Lambrusco developed from the domestication of the Vitis silvestris by vinegrowers. These vines developed over the millennia, from prehistoric times, through natural selection.

The berry is big and spheroidal, with a thin, bloomed, blue-colored skin. The flesh is juicy. Salamino grows with ease.

Notably, the bubbles have a mousse complexity. The scent is intense. fruity, fragrant, complex, recalling the aroma of the grape. The taste is full-flavored, balanced, balanced acidity, and fruity.
