Silvia Zucchi In Purezza (Modena)
Silvia Zucchi is the third and current generation from a family with a long history of winemaking in the Sorbara zone of Lambrusco. After having graduated with a degree in wine making from the highly regarded school of winemaking in Conegliano, Silvia returned home to the family business. After her tenth harvest working with her family, she decided to form her own brand under her name, Silvia Zucchi.
With her own project, she is focusing on small production, high quality wines produced from the family’s oldest vineyards. She continues to work on clonal selections of Lambrusco di Sorbara in those vineyards, a project she had started while still working with her family.
Arriving at my tenth harvest, I decided to dedicate myself to the project of this line that bears my name which currently includes 4 Lambrusco di Sorbara vinified in purity, using only 100% Lambrusco di Sorbara. Two Charmat method sparkling wines, a non-disgorged refermented and a Zero Dosage Classic Method. Everything stems from the idea of giving identity and visibility to the Sorbara territory, which is why I started this long process of clonal selection together with an important French nurseryman. — Silvia Zucchi
