Once thought to be extinct, this is 100% Fogarina from 60-year-old vines grown in sand with clay and silt. Hand-harvested and organic with spontaneous fermentation.

Frizzante (sparkling) and dry. The wine rests in tank from harvest until February or March of the following year, then goes through a slow, natural fermentation in bottle.

The red and black flag on the Fogarina label are the colors of Italian anarchists, a dedication to the memory of family friend Luigi Veronelli, who encouraged Amilcare Alberici to produce La Fogarina. This abandoned vineyard was brought back to life by Alberici and his cousin.

A completely fresh take on Lambrusco, showing tart currant and slightly vegetal qualities in juxtaposition to purple berry ripeness and floral components. Bright with a balanced acidity, this bottle is a breath of fresh air. Crowd pleasing, share this bottle with a few friends over some charcuterie or your favorite NY slice.
