Overview of the Wine
This new range of high quality Lambrusco is a partnership between the Soliera cooperative and Medici Ermete, one of the most influential producers in the renaissance of proper Lambrusco. The Lambrusco wines by Cantina di Soliera balance elegance and structure and are regarded by many as the finest in the area.
The Lambrusco family of grapes is thought to be one of the oldest in Italy and is predominantly found in Emilia-Romagna. Today the focus is on a handful of varieties, and Cantina di Soliera specialise in Lambrusco di Sorbara and Lambrusco Grasparossa, the most important of the 5 Lambrusco DOCs in terms of quality.
"North of Modena between the Panaro and Secchia rivers, whose beds created a sandy soil ideal for the cultivation of prized Lambrusco di Sorbara grapes: this is where our vineyards grow.
The sunny microclimate and the soil containing both clay and sand have never changed. The presence of old vineyards, a testimony to the long tradition, still guarantees the production of grapes with consistently excellent organoleptic properties. At Cantina di Soliera, we know that the land plays an essential role in the success of the wine: the clay walls provide the well-structured flavour typical of Lambrusco, while the sandy soil is crucial for providing its elegant notes. These considerations led to the idea to launch a prestigious, special, and historic wine at the highest levels, like the Lambrusco produced by Cantina di Soliera.
“Soliera”, from which the winery takes its name, comes from the Latin solarium, namely “place exposed to the sun”. This is a fundamental element for cultivating a particular grape like Lambrusco effectively and gives the wine a pleasant and distinctive flavor."
