Le note dell'enologo

Winemaker’s Note

Particularly bright and lively deep red, characterized by a slight hint of violets, but especially of black cherry, blackberry, cherry and blueberry.
These aromatic sensations are heightened by the presence of Malbo Gentile.
Perceptible but not excessive acidity, combined with the tannic structure typical of Lambrusco Grasparossa give this wine balance and structure.
The residual sugar attenuates the bitter sensations from the tannins and gives greater roundness and softness on the palate.
“Il Fojonco” displays delicate balance between its sweet notes, acidity and natural effervescence. It is an ideal wine for celebrations.
