Notes:

Starting from the 2015 vintage this wine is re-fermented in the bottle. The production technique has been changed so to enhance the difference between the two Lambrusco Grasparossa made at Poderi Fiorini.

Vinification and ageing

The clusters are destemmed and crushed. The must is kept in contact with the skins for 3-4 days and cold délestage is carried out. The fermentation is stopped when the sugar reaches 25-26-28 grams/litre. The wine is bottled and the alcoholic fermentation is completed in the bottle. Selected yeast is utilised. A “dégorgement a la glace” follows.

History

Alberto and Cristina Fiorini, brother and sister, are the fourth generation of a family that has produced Lambrusco wines since 1919.
Poderi Fiorini includes three separate holdings within the province of Modena. A distinctive characteristic is that the soil of the various plots is quite different. In fact a very careful research has been carried out in order to choose the most suitable rootstocks and clones for each type of soil.
The microclimate also varies in the three holdings.
The total vineyard extension is approximately 30 hectares. The grape varieties that are grown are Lambrusco di Sorbara, Lambrusco Grasparossa, Lambrusco Salamino, Pignoletto and a small extension of Barbera, Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The estate is within the zone of four DOCs (Lambrusco di Sorbara, Lambrusco Grasparossa di Castelvetro, Lambrusco di Modena and Colli Bolognesi) and within the zone of Colli Bolognesi Classico Pignoletto DOCG. Wines are made under all four the appellations.
The average total production is 200,000 bottles/year.
The Lambrusco of Poderi Fiorini is made in autoclave and also in the traditional way by re-fermenting the wine in the bottle.
Alberto and Cristina also offer a wonderful Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena DOP (“affinato” aged 12 years and “extravecchio” aged 25 years) and Aceto Balsamico di Modena IGP (aged 8 and 5 years).
