Della Volta


Christian Bellei and his father worked to create a quality revolution for Lambrusco's wines. Christian was the first to use Metodo Champenoise to make his wines. This was after he studied and worked for years in Epernay in Champagne. The Bellei family has been farming grapes in Bomporto in Modena since 1920. Christian only uses Sorbara grapes for his wines because they yield a wine with higher but balanced acidity to go with food.

The 2017 Cantina Della Volta Brut Rosso shows excellent depth and persistence. It is a sparkling wine that is very, very versatile with food, especially the amazing food of Modena. The most famous restaurant in Modena is the 3-star Michelin Osteria Francescana. The chef and owner, Massimo Bottura, chose the Cantina Della Volta as his house Lambrusco.

So dish up your best salumi and formaggi, or anything else for that matter, and you will have great fun with this wine.
