From: Emilia-Romagna, Italy
Varietals: Lambrusco di Sorbara, Lambrusco Salamino
Extending from the Adriatic coast in the east to the border of the Mediterranean Ligurian region in the west, Emilia Romagna is a large, central Italian region focused on a wide array of gastronomic specialties. The plains of Emilia host four well-defined subzones for its famous, lightly sparkling red, Lambrusco. Cantina Paltrinieri is a winery located in the heart of Sorbara, where the family has lived for four generations producing Lambrusco di Sorbara DOC.
"When I finished my studies, my father asked me what I wanted to do in life. My answer was that I wanted to keep alive the tradition of work that grandfather Achille had begun in 1926 and that he and my mother had been running for 40 years. In 1998, with my wife Barbara, I started directing the winery, gambling on the production of the first mono-varietal Sorbara. Since then, I have managed and produced 17 hectares of vineyards in the historic area of the Cristo di Sorbara, the thinnest extension of land between the Secchia and the Panaro, the two rivers that embrace the province of Modena." - Alberto Paltrinieri
Sant’ Agata refers to the saint who is the holy protector of the Lambrusco di Sorbara grape, known for its delicate, expressive aromas and acidity that make it a lovely pairing with foods with a bit of richness as a refreshing sip between bites.
Tasting Notes: Light ruby red with fine perlage. The nose is intense and elegant with notes of wild berries, and a characteristic scent of violet. The wine is dry with a pleasant and refreshing acidity.
Pairing: Excellent as an aperitif and with cold cuts (Prosciutto di Parma, coppa), pizza and fried foods, savory pasta dishes, and red meats.
