The grapes of Lambrusco Grasparossa of Castelvetro have an extremely dark skin: at the moment of pressing they immediately release a soft pink colour to the must, unlike other red grapes whose juice is generally white. Given this characteristic, it is essential to obtain only the free-run juice through soft pressing, in fact only the first 15% of the pressing is used for Intuizione. The remaining product is sent to the other production lines because the intensity of the color would be too intense to obtain the delicate pink for this classic method. After the crushing phase, the must begins its fermentation with selected yeasts which will make it become dry wine, without sugar residual. A small part of it will instead be preserved as unfermented must. In Spring Intuizione is bottled, assembling the finished wine with the must that will bring the sugar necessary to make the second fermentation start. After the second fermentation, the sparkling wine will remain on the lees for 24 months before the disgorgement.
Located on the first hill of Castelvetro and Vignola. These vines have an average age of 15 years and are exposed to south-east, planted with girapoggio method, in order to obtain greater ventilation inside the vineyard which gives the grapes greater health and allows to reduce phytosanitary interventions in the vineyard. It is important to underline that this type of accommodation requires a greater working effort. The soil is mainly medium-clayey-loamy, although some bands of the grape fall on a sandy soil which gives the grapes a greater freshness. The different elements conferred by the two types of soil give birth to a magical combination.
