Barbaterre wines come from the grape varieties traditionally grown in the area, like Lambrusco Grasparossa and Salamino, Malbo Gentile and Marzemino. But we have also introduced varieties that over time have become firmly rooted in these areas, like Pinot Nero, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc.
Pinot Nero, the predominant grape grown on almost five hectares of land, is used to produce traditional method wines, refined on their own lees for a long time, and a still version.
With Sauvignon Blanc we produce a vintage Blanc de Blancs and an ancestral method wine with re-fermentation in the bottle.
Marzemino produces a sparkling rosé, also re-fermented, while with Cabernet Sauvignon we make a still red wine.
Lastly, with Lambrusco and Malbo Gentile we produce the traditional re-fermented Lambrusco wine typical of the Reggio Emilia hills and Lambruscante, a special and original version of traditional method wine.
All our wines involve a lengthy winemaking process, alongside a careful but limited human input to monitor and get the best out of them according to the character of each vintage year.
