Luciano Saetti lives in Modena and makes an incredible DOC Lambrusco Salamino di Santa Croce from the very local strain of Salamino. He works completely organically in the vineyards, with nothing added in the cellar, including sulfur. We are thrilled to be working with Luciano, a humble dedicated winemaker.
This visit with Luciano Saetti took place in November, 2013.
