Reggio Emilia down to its soul. We can think of no better way to sum up this wine, whose name highlights its roots: “Arsàn” means “from Reggio Emilia” in the local dialect. . Featuring a blend of Grasparossa, Salamino and Malbo Gentile grapes, this wine revives the authentic qualities of classic Lambrusco,
, using a traditional Emilian wine-making method that involves secondary fermentation in the bottle. It embodies Barbaterre’s vision of hillside Lambrusco.
Fried gnocco with cold cuts, mixed boiled meats, freshwater fish.
It presents a rich, authentic mousse and aromas of plums and strawberries, with a subtle hint of quinine. There is a nicely acidic touch to the fresh, forthright flavour, which becomes increasingly full and boasts a tantalizingly bitter twist in the finish.
Lambrusco Grasparossa 50% – Lambrusco Salamino 20% – Malbo gentile 30%
