    • "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 oxygen consumption. The wine is not shaken like in the Champagner procedure and degorgiert afterwards, but brought usually on the yeast into the sales.

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

    About the winemakers
    Albinea Canali
    Emilia-Romagna
    Albinea Canali

    In 1934, the engineer Lorenzo Motti and the accountant Riziero Capellini began to integrate producers of Lambrusco and Ancellotta - a traditional blend of grapes contained in many Lambrusco wines - into the Albinea Canali winery cooperative in the province of Reggio Emilia. At the beginning of the 19th century, many small winegrowers were still active alone and autonomously in the foothills of the Apennines. Within a few years, the collective grew from seven to around 170 winegrowers to date. In the 1950s, the Cantine Riunite was founded in the same region, which was also joined by Albinea Canali. The cooperative has been producing excellent Lambrusco for years thanks to a very careful grape selection and the highest quality production methods.

    Whoever visits the 16,000 square metre winery, which was renovated in 2005, is impressed: large, attractive open spaces and wooden roof trusses, which give the impression of warmth and lightness, form a harmonious combination. The cooperative also has a large room for wine tastings and conferences and a vinotheque with the products of the house. A modern barrel cellar and a portico leading to a park of monumental cedars are further eye-catchers for visitors. Even today, it is easy to see that the winery was originally conceived by the founding fathers as an avant-garde project.

    The grapes ripening in a valley basin under excellent microclimatic and soil conditions in Albinea Canali represent a kind of "Cru Lambrusco". Natural fermentation in closed autoclaves using selected yeasts are outstanding production characteristics. The fermentation process is interrupted in order to obtain a natural residual sugar content.

    The six wines of the Albinea Canali cooperative winery, which are available on the market and which are particularly enjoyable to drink in the summer, reflect the virtues and personality of their specific terroir by selecting only the fruits of the best wineries and their best production zones. On the other hand, all the wines are prestige wines in which, according to the producer, the bottles are already equipped to express the care and refinement of the winegrowers from Emilia-Romagna.
