Lambrusco Montericco

The red grape variety originates from Italy and is one of the numerous Lambrusco varieties. Synonyms are Lambrusco di Montericco, Lambruscone di Montericco, Lambrusco Selvatica, Salvatica di Montericco, Salvatico and Selvatica. It is named after the municipality of the same name in the province of Padua in Emilia-Romagna. The ancestry (parentage) is unknown. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2005, there is possibly a parent-offspring relationship with the variety Uva Tosca. The late-maturing, high-yielding vine is susceptible to both powdery mildew and botrytis. It is an all-female grape variety. It produces fresh, rather low-alcohol but extract-rich red and rosé wines. These are used for the production of still and sparkling wines. The variety is cultivated in the Emilia-Romagna region in the province of Reggio Emilia. It is permitted in wines from the two DOC areas Colli di Scandiano e di Canossa and Reggiano, among others. In 2016, 25 hectares of vineyards were designated in Italy withr a sharp downward trend (Kym Anderson).

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
