Grasparossa (“red leaves”) refers to both the appellation (in the hills of Modena) and to the clone of Lambrusco. Foamy purple with real wine tannins, this is the classic Lambrusco. It has a slight sweetness, with a welcome acidity that makes it delightfully refreshing. The structure and wild-fruit-earthiness make this perfect for game, roasted meats and salumi.
Ideal pairing with salami, proscuito and hard cheeses
Third Party Reviews
2014 vintage: This single-vineyard Lambrusco shows incredible structure and intensity. Rich, complex strawberry jam notes; followed by luscious blueberries and violets on the finish. A very serious wine. Score 93, Decanter, January 2016
