Cantina di Carpi e Sorbara

over a century of dedication

Listen.It is a choral song that rises from the fields, it begins at Sorbara, travels to Poggio Rusco and arrives at Valsamoggia.
It’s us!
1.200 grape growers that have gathered into a mighty, merry concert.
Each of us have brought our own instrument: a nectar we obtained from the energy of the land and the knowledge of ancient traditions.
Each of us with our own timbre, rhythm and colour.
What makes us contemporary is the passion we have for our work and the joy of touching your heart through a glass.

Gino Friedmann

A tribute, a thank you to him: the bishop of cooperation, the inventor of wine cooperatives.
Enlightened and energetic Modenese of Jewish origin, Gino Friedmann was, from the beginning of the twentieth century on, pioneer of agronomic solutions and innovative entrepreneur who infected the whole social fabric of his province, making possible the association of cooperatives founded on mutualistic and liberal principles.
In short, if it had not been him, we would not be there now.

Only the best can bear his name. That’s why we dedicate a Lambrusco in purity of only grapes of Lambrusco of Sorbara with scent of white fruit and flowers. With a lively, sapid and dry taste with a yeast base. With a rosy red colour, slightly drained and with a fine and persistent froth.
A dry, direct wine, classic in style, of refined simplicity, for people who, like Gino, are sincere and true. True friend, at the table … and everywhere.
