Vintage: 2021
Region: Emilia-Romagna, Italy
Viticulture: Organic
Grape varieties: Lambrusco Grasparossa

Franchina e Giarone Ienide Lambrusco is a crisp and tight sparkling red from Emilia-Romagna. Fruit aromas such as blackcurrant and strawberry release from the glass, and the finish is slightly balsamic with typical mint notes. Lively and direct, the sip is fresh and pleasantly dried with a subtle tannic texture. Spontaneous fermentation, 5-day maceration, 3/4 punch downs per day. Not pressed, vinied, and aged in a fiberglass tank. After spending the winter in the tank, it was bottled during the waning moon of June. Refermentation kick-started in the bottle through the addition of frozen must from the same vintage. Not disgorged.

About Franchina e Giarone

Franchina e giarone is a small farm located on the hills of Emilia started by Luca Pizzetti in 2020. Two plots farmed organically with a total of about six hectares near Castelvetro. Here, Luca produces wines with local vines: Lambrusco, Trebbiano Modenese, Trebbianina, Sgavetta, and others.

The vines are between 15 and 50 years years old, including Lambrusco and Trebbiano, with younger vines of local varieties, Trebbiano Modenese, Trebbiano di Spagna, Lambruschi, Sgavetta, Negretto, Uva Tosca, and Festasio.

The focus here is a sparkling wine with the method of natural refermentation in the bottle. But Luca does not stop there. He sets aside a selection of the grapes for vinification of still wine. There is no use for yeast or other additives (only a small quantity of sulfites).
