    • "Metodo Ancestrale" Lambrusco dell'Emilia IGT secco

      “Metodo Ancestrale” Lambrusco dell’Emilia IGT secco

      The Metodo Ancestrale (also called Pet Nat) is a natural form of bottle fermentation, but without the addition of a dosage. This second fermentation in the bottle stops automatically due to the natural consumption of oxygen. The wine is not shaken and then degorged as in the champagne process, but is usually sold on the yeast.

      Dark pink with purple reflections. In the bouquet ripe raspberries with a delicate elderberry note. On the palate, the tight acidity structure combined with precise fruit components such as raspberry, blackcurrant, blackthorn and a hint of citrus is convincing. Although the residual sugar has been completely fermented, this Lambrusco is still fruity, drinkable and an extraordinary pleasure with every sip! SUPERIORE.DE

    • "RADICE" Lambrusco di Sorbara DOC 2019 secco

      “RADICE” Lambrusco di Sorbara DOC 2019 secco

      Out with the cliché, in with the surprise! Even the most famous Lambrusco plant of the Paltrinieris will fill every connoisseur with joy. Radice is produced using the Pét Nat method (Metodo Ancestrale) and therefore undergoes a second fermentation on its own yeast after bottling.

      This naturally cloudy, dry Frizzante convinces already on the nose with notes of rhubarb, a fresh citrus note and some bread. The persistent, fine perlage and its drinkable nature make it a racy companion for hearty, spicy antipasti, light meat dishes or simply a lively celebration in the midst of nature and happy people. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This copper-red Frizzante is a natural work of art: tasting a little like rhubarb and raspberries, dry - and cloudy like a wheat beer, because it has been fermented to the end in the bottle and not disgorged. It is sealed with a crown cap (like all champagnes before disgorging). The liveried waiter in the chic restaurant in Sardinia opened the bottle as openly at the table as the Köbes in Cologne opened the beer. Right on!" Dr. Jens Priewe (weinkenner.de)

      "Pale salmon pink; pastry notes, fine rubbery, arouses curiosity; smooth foam, very fine, practically dry, fruit depth, length, very pleasant (with yeast)." (JLF) Merum

      "Cloudy apricot. In the nose after yeast, ripe tangerines, peach, fragrant floral echo. On the palate of medium weight, dry and yet with a beautiful fruit sweetness, uncomplicated and flawless, really puts you in a good mood." Falstaff

    Things to know aboutMerum
    Merum

    Merum, the Italian magazine for wine, olive oil, travel and food, has been writing completely independently, competently and critically about wine and olive oil for 25 years, and also about Italian topics, which other magazines leave behind.

    For more than 25 years, the Merum editors around editor-in-chief Andreas März have been passionately reporting on famous and unknown appellations, researching directly on site, selecting the best Barolo, Brunello, Chianti Classico etc. for the readers, and at the same time being committed to less prominent wines such as Vernatsch, Grignolino, Raboso, Lambrusco and, of course, quality olive oil. The articles never just scratch the surface, but provide background knowledge and details that are useful to readers when making purchases and travelling to Italy.

    Merum is not a commercial product, let's call it an immodest cultural product. What is written in Merum is not embellished, sometimes perhaps undiplomatic, even ruthless in the tastings, and uncompromising in the values for which the makers stand. Merum does not seek broad consensus and circulation at any price, but works forward in the service of its subscribers on a journalistic course with which they do not always have to identify, but on whose transparency, reliability and independence they can build. The Swiss small publisher is interested in values that should be strengthened and not in profits that should be maximized.

    Founder and editor-in-chief Andreas März is Swiss, who owns a small farm in Tuscany, where he himself produces one of the best olive oils in Italy and a little wine. In the past, he has built a solid editorial team around himself. Like himself, all editors are completely independent, contentious and constantly on the lookout for the best quality.

    Some MERUM creations enjoy great popularity, such as the little word "beaver wine", which is used to describe wines that have been given too much "toasting" from barrique barrels and thus fall through the evaluation grid. Or the JLF test, at which wines are served hidden on the table for the joint dinner of the editorial staff and also at regular reader meetings in Tuscany, and then the centimetres of remaining wine are measured with a ruler: The emptier the bottle (the better the wine).

    At MERUM, only wines that have a high "drinking factor" in addition to grape variety typicity and terroir fidelity are rated positively. Wines that speak the clear language of their origins and are a lot of fun. The actual wine evaluation is published in the middle of the issue as Merum-Selezione and is evaluated with one to three hearts. Each year the extensive MERUM paperbacks "Italy's Best Wines" and "Italy's Best Olive Oils" are published and each issue is accompanied by a Degu Box containing the best wines from the respective theme tastings. SUPERIORE.DE
