ABOUT THIS WINE
"Quercioli Dolce" is a sparkling sweet red wine crafted using the natural fermentation method. From Reggio Emilia province, the grapes are grown on Cordone Speronato (cordon trained spur pruned) in clay soil with restricted yields. The wine is a blend of Lambrusco Salamino and Lambrusco Marani. The wine is best served at 47-49 degrees Fahrenheit. Bright ruby red with persistent bubbles, the wine shows delicate floral notes of violet, leading to a luxuriously sweet, fresh, vivacious palate that is pleasantly harmonious. An excellent pairing with fruit, dessert, and pizza.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
The year is 1890, on the Via Emilia, the most important commercial road of the town. Remigio Medici owned three successful taverns and decided to found a winery with the aim of making the most of the family vineyards, located between the Via Emilia and the foothills of the Enza valley. Remigio’s son Ermete expanded the business and consolidated the company’s reputation, before handing over the reins to his sons Valter and Giorgio, who began to export, further expanding the brand.
Today the company owns about 80 hectares of vineyards (grown entirely organically), distributed among the areas with the highest wine-making vocation in the Emilia-Romagna region, and exports to over 70 countries in the world. Now in their fifth generation, represented by Alessandro, the Medici family can boast solid experience in the vineyard as well as the cellar.
