In the glass it is purple with ruby reflections, impenetrable and intense, it gives a wide olfactory range of red and black fruits, marasca cherries in spirit to end up with spicy vanilla, licorice and black pepper notes. Once it reaches the palate it begins full and safe dispensing fruity substance and soft but still evolving tannins, all in an exquisite, satisfying balance. Aged 12 months in oak tonneaux.
A maceration of about 48 hours is carried out on the skins at low temperature to delicately extract the most fruity aromas typical of Lambrusco Grasparossa. Once the contact with the skins is over, it begins the first fermentation which takes place in temperature-controlled tanks. As the sugar residue reached is still sufficient to make the second fermentation, the wine, through the only physical procedure of lowering of the temperature, stops its fermentation. It remains on its own yeasts to complete the second fermentation, for a period of two months in an autoclave, before being bottled.
The vineyards from which the Lacrime di Bosco comes are located on the first hill of Castelvetro. These vines have an average age of 15 years and are exposed to south, planted with a girapoggio system, in order to obtain a better ventilation through the vines which gives the grapes greater health and reduces plant protection interventions in the vineyard. It is mportant to underline that this type of accommodation requires more working effort . The soil is mainly of medium clayey-silty mixture, although some bands of the vines fall on a sandy soil which gives the grapes greater freshness. The difference conferred by the two types soil means that the grapes have different characteristics that mix giving birth to a magical combination.
