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

Really Vibrant blueberries and blackcurrants here, as well as lemons and fresh plums. Dry and focussed in terms of the gliding parabolas of bubbles that rise and fall through vivacious blue fruit. Prominent but fine-grained tannins. Taut and tangy on the finish. Delicious now. Score 92 James Suckling, November 2019
