Villa di Corlo Corleto Lambrusco Grasp. di Cast., Emilia-Romagna, Italy, 2021 (750ml)
Lambrusco is Italian for wild grape. Lambrusco Grasparossa di Castelvetro clone is about as good as it gets for this category. Grasparossa refers to both the appellation (in the hills of Modena) and to the clone of Lambrusco. This clone of Lambrusco results in a deeply coloured, more tannic and fuller bodied version of Lambrusco. This wine is a treat!
Foamy purple with real wine tannins, this is the classic, dry 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
