Venturini Baldini was founded in 1976 on an historic 16th century estate in the hills between Parma and Reggio Emilia, the heartland of Lambrusco wine making. Of their 135 hectares, only 30 hectares are vineyards, the remainder being left as wild woods and pastures that buzz with life and biodiversity.  As one expects from great sparkling wine farming, Venturini Baldini’s vines are planted on the south facing slopes of their sandy clay foothills that roll from 300-400m above sea level with excellent drainage and a wide diurnal temperature. Moreover, Venturini Baldini was among the first in the region to obtain organic certification (1976). Their name has been synonymous with the highest quality Lambrusco for decades now.  

They were fortunate to have one of Italy’s best-known winemakers, Carlo Ferrini, overseeing their wine production since 2015.  His professional career spanned more than 40 years of working with many iconic Italian wine estates. In early 2021, Venturini Baldini announced Ferrini’s retirement from the estate and replacement by the equally famed Riccardo Cotarella , widely considered Italy’s number one Eonologist at present.  The wines continue to impress local and international markets. 

Tasting Notes

Deep purple in the glass.  Fresh, fruity and vinous aromas.   The palate is reminiscent of crunchy red fruit, raspberry, cherry candy, cassis and rhubarb.  There is a pleasant bubble and nice weight from the lees with a crisp and dry finish.  Enjoy this with fried gnocchi and mortadella, the regional specialty of tortellini in broth, egg pasta with meat sauces, salami and Parmesan cheese. 

Method

The T.E.R.S.Ancestrale is made from Lambrusco Montericco grapes, a local variety of hills that grows on our sandy clay soil – a soil with a good vocation for viticulture, which gives wines very balanced in alcoholic and phenolic components, with fine aromas.  This wine spends 18 on its lees.
