Cantinon is a semi-dry Lambrusco, dark-coloured and very enjoyable to the taste. Of our wines it’s the one that female customers appreciate the most, with a good texture and a good mixture of aromas that make its
degustation very enjoyable. Ideal for those who are not particularly fond
of the typically dry taste of Lambrusco and prefer a softer but not less
valuable and tasty version of the wine.
Cantinon recalls the tradition of mixing grape varieties with higher sugar content, in order to make the wine taste sweeter.
This product’s name is meant to recall the old surname of our winery: “il cantinon”, meaning literally ‘the bigger winery’ is the way people of the
area have been calling our building for over a century.
