To be honest, it was probably secretly hatching somewhere in my mind for some time, fuelled by my penchant, or rather obsession to buy Lambrusco each and every time I spot it in Italy. Not that I've always loved their taste – I had some incredible ones and a fair bit of bad bottles too – but I really enjoy the idea of a wine that's at the same time sparkling, aromatic, and red.
So here we go, say ciao to Senza, our unlikely sparkling blend! First, we carb-macerated Cabernet Sauvignon & Franc grapes, pressed them before the fermentation finished, then we added a bit of Moravian Muscat and Pálava must to get the extra aromatics and local touch, so important to me in all my wines. Bottled under crown caps while still fermenting to keep the fizz.

"Milan Nestarec is not a winery — I always correct people when they say that. Milan Nestarec is ideas that just happen to be represented through wine. I'm not selling wine. I'm serving a worldview. Using wine as a medium. I could have chosen another one, but this one is so fun. And social. I'm 200% positive that the most important thing is the person who makes the wine. It’s not about a varietal, or a famous village in a famous region - because even those wines can get the bad karma of being massacred in the cellar. It's all about the name on the bottle. A name you can trust, because you know how the person works and that it's a style you enjoy. Where they come from and how they treat their vineyards." - Milan
