Husband and wife team Antonella and Marco Fontana founded the Folicello estate in the early 1980’s. With an initial goal of crafting “a wholesome glass of wine for ourselves and for some friends”, the estate has always been farmed organically. Today their daughters Federica and Irene have joined them in producing low intervention, biodynamically farmed wines. Ancestral method bottle refermentation [or pétillant naturel], with indigenous yeast, no added sulphur. Garnet in colour with pink froth, with aromas of strawberry, red grape, cherry, earth, mint and wildflowers. Morello cherry, blackberry, raspberry, musky earth, and an herbal trace are buoyed by soft, consistent fizz and complimented by fresh acidity and black tea tannins. Tangy fruit, iron minerality and a slight bitterness linger on the dry, crisp finish. Rustic and charming, fantastic on its own or with a wide variety of dishes. 100% Lambrusco Grasparossa 11% Alcohol Folicello Il Rosso Lambrusco Emilia IGT 2016 #lambruscograsparossa #emiliaromagna #vinnaturel #vinobiologico #vinvivant #biodynamicwine #organicwine #vinonatural #vinnature #drinkbetter #drinkitalian #lambrusco #winegeek #vinobiodinamico #instavino #lowintervention #sparklingwine #vinorosso #winestagram #winereview #lambruscoemilia #folicello #caravino
