A ruby red shade wine with a rich and persistent perlage at the smell emphasized by an aroma of violet and red berries. At the taste, the flavor is soft and firm, with scents that recalls the great Lambrusco tradition.
The Vigneto Saetti Winery is a family-operated business that was founded in 1998 by Luciano Saetti, whose family has been growing wine grapes for generations in the traditional manner.
Their vineyard, located in the Santa Croce appellation zone in the province of Modena covers an area of 2.8 contiguous hectares of specialized land registered with the Associazione Italiana per l’Agricoltura Biologica (Italian Organic Agriculture Association).
The vineyard was originally planted in 1964. Over the course of the years they have selected and improved systems of cultivation, but most importantly, every effort has been made to not upset the natural organic harmony of the vineyard.
Indeed, to this day, during the natural harvest operations each and every grape is carefully inspected and selected in order to obtain nothing but completely healthy ones.
Moreover, the vineyard is irrigated by means of the droplet technique and they do not practice green pruning.
By 2007 all of these measures, together with a significant reduction in total grape output and scrupulously carried out wine-making processes, had brought them to the point where they were producing wines without any sulfate additives.
All their products are capable of unleashing fragrances and flavors that evoke the time-honored traditions and display the sincere flavor of a wine product completely free of chemical.
