PRODUCTION AREA

Grapes cultivated in the lowest belt of the province of Modena (Region of Emilia Romagna, central Italy), in the high plain and hilly area.

HARVEST

The maturity is quite tardive and the harvest can take place well into October.

VINIFICATION 

Traditional red wine vinification, with maceration of the must on the leaves in order to extract colour and tannins.

COLOUR

The Lambrusco Grasparossa di Castelvetro is distinguished by its intense ruby red colour with nice violet hints, with lively and evanescent foam of the same colour.

BOUQUET

The bouquet is distinctly fruity and recalls the smell of ripen grapes and peach almond, fragrant, intense and clearly vinous.

TASTE

In the mouth is smooth and velvety, intense and fruity, with a typical slightly bitter after taste.

FOOD PAIRING
