Producer: Fondo Bozzole

Region: Lombardy, Italy

Grapes: Lambrusco Ruberti

This bottle is likely the greatest beacon of Lambrusco potential this side of the river Po; 100% Lambrusco Ruberti with a nose of grape soda, black-berried fruits, dark chocolate, cocoa and BBQ char. Walks a wonderful sweet-tart line with ripping
acidity keeping those big, juicy berry vibes on the straight-and-narrow, with a lovely bitter-herbal edge providing further balance to the sweetness of fruit. Incantabiss means “snake charmer” in the local dialect! Hand harvested, natural
fermentation in stainless steel. Re-fermentation in bottle with must from same harvest. Minimal sulfur additions and no filtering or fining.

Brothers Franco and Mario Accorsi are farmers at heart, more specifically they primarily cultivate orchards filled with local varieties of pears and apples. The farm was run by their grandfather Ezio who raised cows and produced cheese sold in the
local markets around south eastern Lombardy. Today Franco and Mario have integrated orchard fruit production with several small parcels of old vineyards and focus on producing wines from near-lost indigenous varieties of lambrusco. All the
vineyard work is done organically (they are in the process of becoming certified), yields are limited and natural fermentations and low sulfur additions are key to their production. The OltrePo` Mantovano is, as the name suggests, on the banks of the Po` River Valley to the south of the village of Mantova. Soils are clay and limestone mixed with alluvial deposits left by the river. This unique and tiny DOC is the only appellation outside of Emilia-Romagna that produces true lambrusco.
