This Lambrusco variety has only recently been identified and reintroduced. Found since the 19th century in the area around Reggio Emilia, it has often been confused with another local grape found in that area, Marzemino. Locally it’s known as Lambrusco Corbelli or di Rivalta because – until the 1960s – it was primarily grown on the estate of the count Corbelli at Rivalta. Its wine is of medium intensity, has an intense ruby hue and elegant bouquet of blackberry, raspberry and cherry. When given extra maceration, this turns more to plum, liquorice and coffee.
