Tasting Notes: The Camilo Donati Lambrusco dell'Emilia is a refreshing natural wine that have immense pleasure and unique character. Drink as you would a refreshing beer or cider at cold temperature with simple foods. They go particularly well with cold cuts, prosciutto, and dry sausages and gnocco – fried squares of dough – that are traditional in Parma.

Estate History: The Donati estate was started in 1930 and now run by its third generation - Camillo, his wife and their children. They cultivate 11.5 hectares of vines (7.5 of which they own as Tenuta S. Andrea and four which are leased at Tenuta Bottazza) using organic and biodynamic practices. They are about 20 km away from Parma in the hillside at an altitude of around 250m with an eastern exposition. All the grapes, including the white, are fermented like red wines (with skin contact), without temperature control, native yeasts, no fining, no acidification or de-acidification, no added sulfur. The carbonation of these frizzante wines comes from the traditional method of refermentation in bottle, a method that does not require preservatives and which makes this wine, unlike those produced in charmat method, age better. The wines are not filtered and are topped with a crown cap, a traditional closure for some decades in this region. There may be resulting sediment and the bottles should be poured somewhat carefully without a lot of intense movement.
