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
This is a Lambsrusco that gets it just right with good balance of citrusy freshness and intense cranberries and fresh herbs. On the palate, it’s very elegant with a touch of tannin, edgy acidity and zippy finish. Drink now. Score 92, James Suckling, Oct 2018
An alluring fragrance of blue flower and plum leads the nose of this wine while the smooth, vibrant palate delivers ripe blackberry and Marasca cherry flavors. Bright acidity provides the framework. Score 90, Wine Enthusiast, Nov 2017
