Blood orange, raspberries and cream, with a lip-smacking juiciness and lovely note of rhubarb too. It's simultaneously a little frivolous and fun, and yet so serious too, with a touch of bruised thyme and herbal notes, and super dry, textured palate, finishing with cherries and more raspberry. 100% Sorbara
Gianluca Bergianti is a star of Lambrusco. His is the only one on the list at Massimo Bottura's 3 Michelin Star restaurant in Modena, and as well as being a superbly talented winemaker, he's also a keen beekeeper, farmer of heritage grains and producer of hyper-seasonal biodynamic vegetables. His first harvest was just 10 years ago, after intensely researching the two indigenous grapes Sorbara and Salamino, and searching for ancient clones. He spent time studying biodynamics with leaders of the scene in Italy: Stefano Bellotti at Carlo Noro and Michele Lorenzetti, and has worked biodynamically since day one. The wines are thrilling to drink; nervy, tingly, incisive and exciting.
