In Castelvetro di Modena, Lambrusco above all means very colorful and rich bubblies which sometimes have a distinct tannic depth. A case in point is Canova from Fattoria Moretto, where the grapes grow in a soil rich in clay that exalts their structure, which is the richest wine from this leading estate in the Modena hills.
Let there be no doubt, this area is an international reference point for those who love sparkling wine.
