Details

Terbianc Sparkling White Cinque Campi 2015, organic wine, no added sulphur wine, 100% Trebbiano, natural second fermentation in bottle, dry, elegant, stunning freshness. You could call this white Lambrusco! Terbianc is super cool easy drinking natural fizz. Vanni only makes about 2500 bottles and it goes quickly such is the moreishness of this wine. The initial ferment is with 5 days skin contact just to add a little more weight to the texture and aroma and then second ferment is in bottle with no extra added yeast. There is no significant extra maturation in bottle unlike the Particella 128 so the wine has more of the crisp, immediate youthful fruit character and less autolytic character of a 'Metodo Classico' wine. A lovely clean pop reveals aromas of white fruits, honey, orange leading to a mineral and fairly full bodied palate. Great, great fun natural sparkling wine for all occasions.

Vanni Nizzoli is a wine artisan, a natural warrior. He took over his family farm based in the hills around Puianello di Quattro Castella in Northern Emilia in 2003 and wasted no time in converting it to organic production. They had always worked naturally at their farm but wine making had been only for family and friends.

In 2005 they started to replant their historic vineyards with traditional local varieties like Spergola, Lambrusco Grasparossa and Malbo Gentile but also some international varieties like Marzemino, Cabernet Sauvignon, Muscat and Carmenere. The ancient soils are 20% sand, 45% silt, 35% clay, a 'terroir' in which the native grapes and the carefully selected new vines thrive and produce wines of quality and personality.

The name of Puianello di Quattro Castella comes from the four castles built on each of the four hills that characterize the landscape; Monte Vetro, Bianello, Monte Lucio and Monte Zagno. This is Lambrusco country, that traditional frothy, Italian wine which is so misunderstood and which has spawned so many dreadful alter-egos. Let's not even mention the Lambrini girls!

The Lambrusco grape has been cultivated principally around the central provinces of Modena, Parma, Reggio nell'Emilia, and Mantua since Etruscan times and the Romans valued the grape highly for its productivity and quality. Lambrusco has always been produced its own unique style, a dry, fruity red wine with a natural frothiness. The gentle bubbles are generally produced using the Charmant method (like a Prosecco), which means a second fermentation in the vat before bottling the slightly fizzy wine under pressure. However, more and more producers are favouring bottle fermentation and ageing on the lees (like a Champagne) and also making fizzy wines from the white grapes of the region like Spergola and Trebbiano.

Lambrusco and other frothy wines from Emilia are both traditional and appealing. Slightly fizzy red wine takes a little getting used to when we in the UK are so used to still red wines. However, the uplifting nature of bubbles makes frothy reds fun, fresh and fantastically easy drinking. The savoury element and tannins keep them firmly in the ‘with food’ camp too. They can be drunk from the fridge on a warm summers evening or at room temp with a Lasagna in mid winter. Lambrusco is nothing if not versatile.

At Cinque Campi, natural is the watch word, they have always worked this way but Vanni has moved things on a lot. They are certified organic and use biodynamic preparations in the vineyards. All fermentations are natural, very little temperature control is used and the wines never see any sulphur at all. They all have a nervous edgy energy to them and the froth is reassuringly unpredictable, sometimes exploding from the glass, other times, remaining quite tame. Both still and frothy are excellent and the prices are superb considering only a handful of cases are made each year.

Give bubbles a try, Vanni’s are some of the best and we love them all but the Terbianc made with a second ferment in bottle from low yielding Trebbiano is a belter!

  1. How good is this wine?

    John A01/06/2017

    Easy to drink but with more than a touch of class. Crisp, fresh and thirst-quenching, with a lingering, satisfyingly complex finish. Thanks for the tip Dave - a good call!
