Lambrusco | Classic
Lambrusco, the dry and sparkling wine from Emilia-Romagna is one of Italy's classics. Made from the grape variety of the same name, this fruity red wine is produced mainly west of Modena in the province of Reggio Emilia. The characteristics of Lambrusco Secco are its mild and sweet taste, its bright ruby red color and its fine and persistent foam.
The red grape variety Lambrusco is mainly native to Emilia-Romagna, from which the popular Lambrusco wines are made. It is an excellent sweet or dry, consistently drinkable, but always slightly sparkling quality wine or table wine, but never a sparkling wine. The wines have dry up to 15 g/l residual sugar, sweet about 40 to 50g/l residual sugar. Lambrusco wines are drunk young.
There are a total of four DOC zones. Lambrusco di Sorbara,: mostly dry, it has a high acidity. Lambrusco Grasparossa di Castelvetro: tannic and residual sweet. Lambrusco Reggiano: it is the strongest in terms of quantity, it is also often sold as Frizzante rosso. Lambrusco Salamino di Santa Croce: the area with the smallest production, it provides vinous and dry Lambrusco and is of excellent quality. Among the most famous (and best) producers of the area is undoubtedly Medici Ermete. - Gerardo
"Is there a clear indication of the renaissance of Lambrusco? On this vineyard terroir, it is certain, a new culture is blossoming in parallel with the tradition of the powerful bottler-dealers." - Gambero Rosso
