Denny Bini (Podere Cipolla)

In case you hadn’t noticed, Emila, the land of Lambrusco, has a revolution brewing (or fermenting, often in bottle). After too many years of industrially-produced mediocrity, Emilia is now home to a small but growing cell of artisanal producers who are farming carefully and returning to the 'metodo ancestrale' of their grandfathers: secondary fermentation in the bottle, without disgorgement. Denny Bini is one of the humble heroes of this renaissance-revolution. He makes 6,000 bottles per year from a single hectare of organically-farmed vineyards. "Ponente 270" is the sparkling red and is mostly Grasparossa. "Rosa dei Venti" is the sparkling rosato (Grasparossa and Malbo Gentile). "Levante 90" is the sparkling white wine, made from Malvasia. All three are bottle-fermented. Denny also makes our Fuso21 Lambrusco dell’Emilia (a.k.a. The Party Label) from fruit purchased from the practicing organic vineyards of family and friends.
