Old World Wines: Enantio from Terra dei Forti DOC, Trentino, Italy

I just spoke about this grape this morning on my Instagram live feed on @Vignetocomms where I speak about Italian indigenious grape varieties mostly every morning. This one from the Trentino region is pretty exciting.

Enantio Terra dei Forti

Sometimes I come upon a grape I have never heard of and am really surprised to learn its history. This time around it was a wine made from Enantio that surprised me. This wine was from Cantina Valdadige . Apparently Enantio is also sometimes called Lambrusco a foglia frastagliata but is not genetically related to Lambrusco from Emilia Romagna. It was a winter wine, hardy with some spicy notes and lots of red fruits. Apparently some of the grapes are given a very long hang time on the vine and are picked when they are slightly over-ripe leading to the richness you find in this surprising wine. It ages in small barrels for 15-18 months. I had it last Christmas I believe thanks to a friend who turned me on to the wine. It is available for sale in the United States as well and you can find it hereā€¦
