Ci Confonde Rosso, what we fondly call CC Red, has been winning some hearts of late. Not only was it reviewed in an issue of Wine & Spirits Magazine earlier this autumn, a first for a cold climate hybrid sparkling wine! {It got 90 pts if you're into that kind of thing}, but it was also featured in Wine & Spirits' in depth look at American Bubbles. The C.C. Rosso is the red velvet version of our pet nats from the Ci Confonde series.  This sparkling red is grown in the Vergennes vineyard, on the top of the western facing slope on clay and limestone, favoring the clay.  Marquette is the red grape, a descendent of pinot noir.  In September of last year the fruit was brought to the winery in the mountains, destemmed, foot-crushed then pressed within 36 hours.  Once the fermentation kicked off, we waited for the perfect amount of sugar remaining to create a soft bubble, then we bottled it under cap.  Bottles were disgorged and topped up with more of the wine in early July.  This is the Champlain Valley expression of Lambrusco, deep and gem-like calling forward all the berries of the forest, but with acidity to balance all that fruitiness. We like this wine with Cured meats {especially coppa and prosciutto} Agnoletti pasta Traditional Bolognese Roast pork belly Fresh ricotta ravioli in butter and sage Daylillies stuffed with ground pork and chevre Marquette Indigenous yeast No added sulfites Grown on clay and limestone
