Notes from Triangle Wine Co:
"Paltrinieri is a family winery three generations and running. The vineyards and winery are just north of Modena in Emilia-Romagna. The Paltrinieris have 15 hectares of vineyards. Farming is a carefully-calibrated lotta integrata (lutte raisonnee in French; “sustainable” is probably the closest analogue in English). All fermentations, both primary and secondary, are with native yeasts and are longer than the norm. The longer fermentations “help preserve what’s there” in the grapes."
Their "La Riserva" bottling is made from 100% Sorbara, from a combination of free run and lightly pressed juice, yielding a very faint, pale rose. The base wine is fermented by indigenous yeasts, followed by a traditional tank method for secondary fermentation. It rests for 12 months on the lees prior to disgorgement and bottling.
