COLLI DI SCANDIANO AND CANOSSA DOC
LAMBRUSCO MONTERICCO ROSATO

ROSA MATILDE

Obtained by vinifying Lambrusco Montericco in purity, an ancient variety grown in the area adjacent to Puianello, between Broletto and Montericco: a small and particularly suitable hilly area, where the vine acquires unmistakable characteristics for color and elegance. This vine has very ancient origins that betray its wild birth: it was in fact, in the 9th century, called Selvatica Montericco or Lambrusco Selvatico.

Harvest
Generally in the first days of October, a late ripening allowed by a not very thick but firm skin; the grapes are harvested strictly by hand

Vinification
The must macerates on the skins for twelve hours at very low temperatures, preserving the primary aromas, while the fermentation in tanks at controlled temperatures, until reaching 50 gl of sugar, allows the subsequent froth with the Charmat method. This technique, called monofermentation, maintains and enhances the primary characteristics of the grape.
