Emilia Romagna is a region known throughout Italy for great wine and upbeat music. Here, the traditional orchestras play a kind of music called “Liscio” in the original dance halls known as “Blaere.” The project Fratelli Ottoni was created to enhance the symbiosis between music and wine typical of this region. In the orchestra, the Brass section gives color to the songs while the individual elements of Trumpet, Tuba, Saxophone, and Trombone blend together to create a unique harmony. This is the goal of Fratelli Ottoni—individual excellence that joins together toward a common symphony.
I thought Lambrusco should be on the map for American wine drinkers in later 2012 so I partnered with Marco Branchini to make a great little wine that'd be easy to enjoy.
