The StoryThe history of the Bellei family and their love affair with Lambrusco goes back decades, all the way back to the 1920s. Winemaker Christian Bellei is the family's fourth generation, and he and his father “Beppe” before him were pioneers in a recent revolution in quality in this part of Emilia-Romagna. In Bomporto outside of Modena, Lambrusco is essential to pair with all that local salumi and formaggi, and Cantina della Volta understands how vital that connection is.

Along with his father, Christian spent much time studying and mastering the art of great sparkling wines in Epernay, France. Thanks to the help of a few devoted friends and supporters, Christian was able to lead his family winery in a new direction, one focused on classic method wines and a new level of quality. In 2010, Cantina della Volta was started, amongst the first to push Champenoise-style Lambrusco. The reputation has come such a long way thanks to folks like this, and in perhaps Italy’s best culinary region, the wines are of the caliber to pair.

Why You'll Love Me: Pours a brilliant ruby red color, with elegant and uninterrupted
chains of tiny perlage, characteristic of the Classic Method. On the nose, inviting fragrances of raspberries and juicy wild strawberries mix with intriguing citrus notes. In the mouth, as an authentic Sorbara wine, it shows broadly rich fruity flavors The
finish shows good persistence, and excellent harmony between a balance of acid and saline characteristic before a clean finish
