Medici Ermete ‘Concerto’ Reggiano Lambrusco DOC 2017

 

Estate: Located between the Via Emilia and the first of the hills in the Enza valley of Emilia-Romagna, the heart of northern Italy, Medici Ermete is one of the oldest producers of Lambrusco. With a goal of “making the most of the family vineyards”, Remigio Medici founded the estate in the late 19th century. Today, the 75 hectare estate is headed by the 4th generation of the Medici family, Alberto Medici, along with his cousin, Pierluigi, and his sister, Alessandra. Pioneering high quality Lambrusco for over 120 years, Medici Ermete is the first winery in the region to craft single vineyard wines. The estate farms organically and sustainably.

Philosophy: To be “in complete harmony with nature and the environment” thereby “creating a close link between the individual vineyards and the wines produced”.

Winemaking: Concerto is the first single vineyard, vintage Lambrusco produced. Grapes are from the prestigious Tenuta La Rampata vineyard. Close to the river, the clay soil has many little stones. The juice is kept in contact with the skins for a full 6 days. Fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Charmat Method.

Tasting Notes: Fresh and tangy red currant, pomegranate, strawberry, raspberry and cherry are framed by dry, black tea tannins, bright acidity, elegant bubbles and clean minerality. Finishing dry and fruity.
