Paltrinieri 'Solco' Semi-secco Frizzante Lambrusco dell'Emilia IGT, Emilia-Romagna, Italy

The Sparkling Jewel of Emilia: Paltrinieri 'Solco'

A Legacy of Lambrusco: The Heritage of Emilia-Romagna

In the heart of Italy's Emilia-Romagna region, where ancient roads intertwine with rich agricultural heritage, Paltrinieri crafts its 'Solco' Semi-secco Frizzante Lambrusco, a testament to the land's deep-rooted wine traditions. Emilia-Romagna split into the historical areas of Emilia and Romagna, has been a cradle of viniculture, with its reputation for quantity transforming into a quest for quality. The Emilia IGT, recognized officially in 1995, celebrates the region's diversity, from the ruby glints of Lambrusco to the international allure of Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. Paltrinieri's 'Solco' emerges from this mosaic, a sparkling red that encapsulates the essence of Emilia, a region where wine is woven into the fabric of daily life.

Crafting Elegance: Vineyard to Bottle

'Solco' is born from the Lambrusco Salamino grape variety, thriving in the 'Cristo' di Sorbara vineyard, a land kissed by the waters of the Secchia and Panaro rivers. This 15-hectare vineyard, nurtured under the Geneva Double Curtain training system, benefits from soil rich in organic matter, ensuring the grapes embody the terroir's vibrant character. Harvested in mid-September, the grapes undergo maceration and fermentation through the Martinotti method, a technique that preserves the grape's natural freshness and fruitiness, resulting in a lively and profound wine.
