Additional Information on Cella Lambrusco

Winery: Cella

Varietal: Lambrusco

The Lambrusco grape varietal is widely enjoyed by wine makers and drinkers alike around the world, and it is one varietal which has an impressive and very long history. Archaeological evidence suggests it was being grown and cultivated long before the Romans, and has been an important grape for the identity and culture of the people who live in its indigenous Emilia region ever since. The grapes themselves are most commonly used for the famous sparkling wine which bears its name, and Lambrusco is renowned for holding slightly sweet, strawberry flavors which make it a favorite for many due to its light body, elegance and easy drinkability. It is also used to make dry wines, which have a slightly bitter after taste, and is a grape with many variants as many as sixty, making it an interesting and unique varietal with many sought after attributes.

Region: Tuscany

All over the stunning region of Tuscany in central Italy, you'll see rolling hills covered in green, healthy grapevines. This region is currently Italy's third largest producer of wines, but interestingly wineries here are generally happy with lower yields holding higher quality grapes, believing that they have a responsibility to uphold the excellent reputation of Tuscany, rather than let it slip into 'quantity over quality' wine-making as it did in the mid twentieth century. The region has a difficult soil type to work with, but the excellent climate and generations of expertise more than make up for this problem. Most commonly, Tuscan vintners grow Sangiovese and Vernaccia varietal grapes, although more and more varietals are being planted nowadays in order to produce other high quality wine styles.

Country: Italy

Italy is recognised as being one of the finest wine producing countries in the world, and it isn't difficult to see why. With a vast amount of land across the country used primarily for vineyard cultivation and wine production, each region of Italy manages to produce a wide range of excellent quality wines, each representative of the region it is produced in. Any lover of Italian wines will be able to tell you of the variety the country produces, from the deliciously astringent and alpine-fresh wines of the northern borders, to the deliciously jammy and fruit-forward wines of the south and the Italian islands. Regions such as Barolo are frequently compared with Bordeaux and Burgundy in France, as their oak aged red wines have all the complexity and earthy, spicy excellence of some of the finest wines in the world, and the sparkling wines of Asti and elsewhere in Italy can easily challenge and often exceed the high standards put forward by Champagne. Thanks to excellent terrain and climatic conditions, Italy has long since proven itself a major player in the world of wines, and long may this dedication to quality and excellence continue.
