Enantio | Red wine grape native to Italy. In Trentino and Veneto, Enantio is still most often called Lambrusco a Foglia Frastagliata

Where grown | Trentino & Veneto: Enantio has been grown for centuries in the countryside of the low Vallagarina in Trentino, specifically in the Terre dei Forti, along the river Adige.

Wines | Trentino: Valdadige DOC. | Valdadige Terre dei Forti Enantio DOC. | Valdadige Terre dei Forti Rosso DOC (blended with other varieties).

Viticulture | Enantio has medium-sized berries and bunches. It is a vigorous and reliable producer; and is very disease and frost resistant.

Wine style | Enantio wines show bright, juicy, delicately herbal red berry fruit with deceptive depth.
