QUARTICELLO

Italy, Emilia Romagna, Lambrusco

The Quarticello Farm was established in 2001 after the purchase of a eight-hectare property in the area “Quarticello” Montecchio Emilia by the Maestri family.

While his grandfather made wine as a hobby for the family to drink, Roberto fell in love with the land and the craft and sought a broader foundation for his winemaking skills. Realizing he had many gaps to fill in he studied enology and viticulture and started helping out on the estate anywhere he could. By 2006, when the farm was in better shape and he had greater know how, Maestri released his first vintage. One of the changes Roberto made was to implement Guyot.

The production focuses on the indigenous grapes of Lambrusco. Chemicals are not used and the soil is fertilized with organic elements only. In the cellar, the aim is to minimize the use of sulfur dioxide and all actions which may in any way alter the expression of the characteristics of grape varieties grown in this special region.

These wines offer a great alternative in the sparkling wine category, with infinite charm, uniqueness and honesty. These wines are alive to be sure! Another product we are thrilled and proud to pour for you.
