PerFranco is a tribute to the winemaker Gianluca Bergianti's grandfather

In 2008 Gianluca founded Terrevive after purchasing land outside Modena. He had a plan for his own interpretation of Lambrusco, and it started on the farm and in the soil. He didn't just plant vines though, he planted fruit and nut trees, grains, vegetables, herbs and more. Polyculture was integral to his philosophy of farming, as was using only natural, organic methods in all aspects of production.

His passion for the farm also translates to winemaking. Gianluca refuses to use the “charmat” method of adding CO2 via careful recipest of cultured yeast and sugar, and instead uses his own grape must as the only addition to kick start the secondary fermentation in bottle. It’s closer to Champagne than Lambrusco or Prosecco, and certainly not a Petillant-Natural, but it’s really just a unique expression of the land and his vision for wines produced from it.

The wines are all pristine, elegant and transparent. Dry and mineral laden, with distinct aromas that are unique to each cuvée he makes.

What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...

Produced purely from an ancient hyper-local clone of Salamino di Santa Croce, “PerFranco” is named for Gianluca’s grandfather. Paler in hue than “No Autoclave,” it pours a lightly hazy salmon in the glass, yet its overall spirit is more vinous and serious. With a blast of mouthwatering acidity that could awaken one from a coma, it buries its bubbles beneath a bracingly tense texture which delivers notes of wild strawberries and freshly plucked herbs with dirt still clinging to the roots.
