Terrevive Lambrusco Rosato 'San Vincent', Emilia-Romagna, Italy 2020
In 2008, Gianluca Bergianti founded Terrevive with 16 hectares in the village of Gargallo di Carpi just outside Modena, operating according to strict biodynamic principles since day one. A self-described “extremist,” Gianluca doesn't add anything to his wines, so his wines always end up scintillatingly bone-dry. To achieve his fine bubbles, he employs a low-tech method, adding grape must and nothing else to his dry wines as they’re being bottled for their secondary fermentation. Leftover natural yeasts devour the sugars in the must, creating a gentle natural effervescence in each bottle within about three months. This rosé is delightful and perfect beginning to nice evening.
Pairing: Greek Salad, salmon tartar
Grape: Lambrusco Sorbara
