    Winemaker Notes

    Fine and persistent foam with violet hues, this wine is rich ruby red in color with garnet reflections, particularly along the rim. Fruity aromas of red berries intermingle with spicy notes. On the palate, pleasantly semi-sweet fruit flavors come through. It is nicely balanced by light tannins.

    Blend: 90% Lambrusco Grasparossa, 10% Malbo Gentile

    Serve well-chilled as an aperitif with typical fare from the the Emilia-Romagna region including cured fatty charcuterie like mortadella. Also excellent with meat tortellini.

    Donelli, Italy
    Based in the northern Italian region of Emilia-Romagna, Donelli has been producing wines of mass appeal since 1915 when Adolfo Donelli transitioned from bottling wine in his home cellar to launching a full-scale winery. From the start, Donelli has dedicated itself to the production of Lambrusco, a sparkling red that is as unique as the region where it was born. The Giacobazzi family took control of the winery in the mid-90s and is proud to carry on the respected traditions of Donelli. Antonio Giacobazzi, president of Donelli, is joined in the business by three of his children: Alberto, Giovanni, and Angela.

    Spanning over 110 hectares, Donelli’s estate-owned vineyards are planted to various strains of the native Lambrusco varietal, as well as other indigenous grapes. All fruit is hand-harvested after careful vineyard selection. The grapes undergo multiple fermentations in refrigerated stainless steel tanks, helping to create the subtle effervescence and freshness showcased in each wine, via the Charmat method. Modern technology is combined with tradition, producing wines that have garnered acclaim throughout the world and made Donelli an internationally recognized brand.

    With deep roots in the region, Donelli is actively involved in the culture of Emilia-Romagna, embracing all things local.

    The Scaglietti line of wines pays tribute to Ferrari. Packaged in a proprietary bottle designed by celebrated Ferrari sports car designer Sergio Scaglietti, the sleek lines remind of his famous designs. This exclusive bottle was the only project Scaglietti took on in his retirement as a favor to his dear friend, Antonio. His signature graces every bottle.

    As the culinary capital of Italy, Lambrusco, the local wine, is the ideal pairing to complement the traditional dishes of the region. To stress the versatility of their wines ability to pair well with a wide array of food, Donelli classifies some of their Lambruscos as DOP, a designation typically reserved for high-end food products in Italy, rather than DOC, normally associated with wines.

    Extending from the Adriatic coast in the east, to the border of the Mediterranean Ligurian region in the west, Emilia Romagna is a large, central Italian region focused on a wide array of gastronomic specialties. The plains of Emilia host four well-defined subzones for its famous, lightly sparkling red, Lambrusco. The more coastal Romagna has the capacity to produce impressive wines from Sangiovese and Albana.

    Made in a handful of wine regions across the globe, red sparkling wine ranges from delicately sweet to bone dry. While styles vary by region, red sparkling wine production methods are often the decision of the winemaker. For serving, cool red sparkling wine down to about 40F to 50F.
