Enantio

#vine #blackgrapes #native #trentino

Enantio, also known as Lambrusco a foglia frastagliata, is a native vine from Trentino-Alto Adige. It has nothing to do with the Lambrusco family cultivated in Emilia-Romagna. In Trentino-Alto Adige it is cultivated mainly in Vallagarina, south of Rovereto. In the last decades its use has been heavily reduced, going from an annual production of 120,000 quintals to about 6,000 quintals. Despite this, it is appreciated for its natural resistance to the common pathogenic events being, among other things, it also survived the Phylloxera.

In the past it has been used mainly for the production of red wines, while today we try to propose it in purity, generally with an appropriate period of maturation and refinement to smooth its natural tannins and vegetal hints.

Tasting

The prevalent color is quite intense and intense ruby red. The scent is quite intense but not complex. In young wines, mainly vegetal notes emerge to the detriment of the floral and fruity ones. Intense spicy notes emerge in aged wines. The taste is quite intense and quite pleasant, characterized by a certain bitterness that, with aging, is adequately balanced. The wine is quite bodied and moderately tannic.
