Bertolani winery was founded in Scandiano in 1925 by Alfredo Bertolani, who had great passion for grapes and knowledge of the land. Now in its fourth generation, Bertolani's respect of terroir and careful winemaking continue to produce Lambrusco of great quality. Scandiano lies in the south of Reggio Emilia province. Our grapes come from hillside vineyards where soil is fine with high levels of clay and lime, low availability of water and low fertility. Hillside Lambrusco differs greatly from that grown on the plains both in terms of climate and soil conditions. The vineyards in the hills are older and their balance brings out the harmony and sparkling spirit of the grapes, creating wines with a strong character that are often more structured and sapid, with intense fruity notes.
