Reggiano

Many grape varieties, one Lambrusco DOC

Lambrusco Reggiano In their unique approach to fermentation, the winemakers of Reggio Emilia have come up with an individual approach to Lambrusco. Lambrusco Reggiano allows its makers to combine several grapes as long as they all come from within the large Lambrusco family. Thus each producer can create their own blend, choosing the varieties that will give colour and flavour to their personal concept. The production area is the central-western part of Emilia-Romagna in the province of Reggio Emilia, which is mainly in the plain, with a smaller section in the low foothills.
