Lambrusco Rosso Venturini Baldini Montelocco Bio 2020

MXN $435

Grape: 100% Salamino (Lambrusco)

Appellation: Lambrusco Emilia IGP

Region: Emilia Romagna, Italy

You’ll taste/smell: finally a Lambrusco we love! This is in another category from commercial lambruscos you can find in your local store. Extra dry, fun and fruity, balanced by racy acidity, subtle tannins, and a refreshing chill, tasting of juicy black cherry and mediterranean herbs. AND low alcohol, so this is the bubbly you were waiting for.

Good to have it with: this is definitely a wine you can have with food or without it, but creamy cheesy raviolis will pair nicely.

The Winery: Venturini Baldini

Venturini Baldini was founded in 1976 on an historic 16th century estate in the hills between Parma and Reggio Emilia, the heartland of Lambrusco wine making. Of their 135 hectares, only 30 hectares are vineyards, the remainder being left as wild woods and pastures that buzz with life and biodiversity.  As one expects from great sparkling wine farming, Venturini’s vines are planted among the south facing slopes of their sandy clay foothills that roll from 300-400m above sea level with excellent drainage and a wide diurnal temperature. Moreover, Venturini was among the first in the region to obtain organic certification (1976). Their name has been synonymous with the highest quality Lambrusco for decades now.

They were fortunate to have one of Italy’s best-known winemakers, Carlo Ferrini, overseeing their wine production since 2015.  His professional career spanned more than 40 years of working with many iconic Italian wine estates. In early 2021, Venturini Baldini announced Ferrini’s retirement from the estate and replacement by the equally famed Riccardo Cotarella , widely considered Italy’s number one Eonologist at present.  The wines continue to impress local and international markets.
