Vitivinicola Fangareggi was founded in 2005 by Giuseppe Fangareggi, even though the family has been growing Lambrusco since the 1800's. Today, Giuseppe's son, Matteo, runs the farm along with his mother, Margherita, and his uncle, Roberto. Giuseppe and Roberto take care of the vineyards, Margarita takes care of hospitality, and Matteo takes care of everything else, including the winemaking. Their wines are produced only from the family's 24 hectares of vineyards spread across eight parcels in the provinces of Reggio Emilia and Modena. Most vineyard work is done by hand and the vineyards are practicing organic with an advanced integrated pest management protocol. In the cellar, Matteo uses only indigenous yeasts for primary fermentation to produce six types of sparkling wines, both red and white, with a focus on the production of Lambrusco.
The Biancospino is a blend of 85% Lambrusco di Sorbara (vinified white), 10% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Chardonnay. The grapes undergo a gentle, soft pressing followed by fermentation in steel tanks with indigenous yeasts and second fermentation according to the Charmat Method. Fresh, fragrant and fruity on the nose with aromas of apple, lemon and grapefruit. The palate is lively, textured and balanced with firm length and clean, persistent finish. An authentic and joyful wines, perfect with the meats and cheeses Emilia is known for. 11% ABV
