Paltrinieri

 AZIENDA AGRICOLA PALTRINIERI GIANFRANCO  Paltrinieri family
Cantina Paltrinieri was founded by Achille Paltrinieri in 1926 and has since been passed down for three generations, first to Achille’s son Gianfranco and now to the founder’s grandson Alberto, who with the help of his wife Barbara operate the 37 acre (15 hectare) estate that is located near the town of Sorbara in the historic growing area of "Il Cristo". They are assisted by the enologists Attilio Pagli e Leonardo Conti.  The "il Cristo" area is comprised of a thin strip of flood plain tucked in between the Secchia and Panaro Rivers. It is in this loose, silty, permeable potassium rich soil that the noble Lambrusco di Sorbara grape performs at its best, yielding light-ruby colored wines with a very fine, fresh, pronounced scent of small forest berries and a distinctive hint of violets backed by a tangy, pleasant and refreshing acidity.  Due to a flowering anomaly, similar to that of Picolit, production of the Lambrusco di Sorbara is always limited, but what lacks in quantity is made up for in quality.  In order to facilitate fertilization a certain percentage of Lambrusco Salamino vines are grown between the rows of Sorbara.
Alberto is very traditional in his approach to the vineyard and wine making, having finely tuned the ancestral method of second fermentation in the bottle with indigenous yeasts, while utilizing the most avant-garde technology to ensure quality.  Second fermentation takes place in small batches in stainless steel tanks at various times throughout the year, thus ensuring freshness and individuality of each bottling.  One thing for certain is that Alberto Paltrinieri has found his niche and his wines are elegant, sharp and expressive.
