NV Cantina di Santa Croce Lambrusco Salamino DOC
Cantina di Santa Croce has a long history with deep roots in Emilia-Romagna. It was established in 1907 as an "association amongst grape producers in the Santa Croce and neighboring districts.” Business began in October, 1908 with 54 members. Nowadays, the winery boasts 250 members. They produce wines of striking purity and typicity. Made from 100% Lambrusco Salamino di Santa Croce grapes. The juice macerates on the skins to obtain its vibrant ruby color and layered flavor profile. It is fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures to maintain its freshness and beguiling aromatics. The color is dark purple-magenta with an intense violet rim; the wine is enticingly effervescent and bursting with deep notes of ripe blackberries, raspberries and black cherries imbued with hints of violets and rose petals. It’s very dry, spicy and savory, with surprising depth of earthiness and an underlying sense of minerality - yet it's incredibly refreshing.
