Donati Camillo, Lambrusco Rosso

Tasting Note

A deep, brilliant crimson colour. It has soft brown-sugar and strawberry pulp aromas, with a little hint of briar. On the palate it is frizzante, with quite a robust, serious, earthy chewy-cherry fruit and a quite intense plum-skin grip. Mouthfilling and well-textured, there is plenty of racy raspberry acidity and lovely balance.

  • The Donati estate is a family estate started in 1930 which is now run by the third generation of Donati – Camillo Donati, his wife and their children. They are about 20 km away from Parma in the hillside at an altitude of around 250 m with an eastern exposition. There are a number of diverse strains of the Lambrusco grape family, but the main Lambrusco grape of the Parma zone is Lambrusco Maestri and it is planted on flat plains because of its characteristic resistance to humidity and mildew, and also for its relative abundant fruit. For this reason, the Donati do a severe pruning to produce low yields of better quality.
