Brescia, Italia

Cellatica is a wine made from at least 30% Marzemino (also called Berzamino), at least 30% Barbera, at least 10% Schiava Gentile, at least 10% Cabernet Franc as well as other red varietals. It is grown in the communes of Rodengo Saiano, Gussago, Cellatica and Collebeato in the Brescia province of Lombardia at altitudes of less than 400 meters. Cellatica must have at least 11.5% alcohol, but if the alcohol excedes 12% and it is not sold until September 30th of the year following the grapes' harvest then it may be labeled Superiore. It was granted status as a DOC on 19 April 1968.
