Winemaker Notes

A dry, full-bodied and delightful Lambrusco Grasparossa. Col Sassoso is well-structured and deep ruby red in color with a purple rim. This wine has a spicy aroma, with a full-bodied and pleasantly fruity flavor (hints of morello cherries).

Pair with charcuterie, pasta dishes with meat sauces, boiled meats and red roasts. Excellent with cheeses.

Wine Spectator
A bright, elegant frizzante Lambrusco, with light, fine tannins and a lacy mousse carrying the flavors of crushed raspberry, licorice and bergamot. Drink now through 2021.

Video of winery

The Cavicchioli family has been cultivating vines in the San Prospero province of Modena (Sorbara DOC) for over a century, but it was not until 1928 that Umberto Cavicchioli began bottling the wine under his family name. Umberto’s two grandsons, brothers Sandro and Claudio are still part of the business today. The Cavicchioli family is among the largest landowners in the Modena DOC with 235 acres of vineyards of which 173 acres are of the prized Lambrusco di Sorbara variety. Here, the climate is always humid with cold winters and hot summers and vineyards are planted in the pergola system to keep the vines dry.

Extending from the Adriatic coast in the east, to the border of the Mediterranean Ligurian region in the west, Emilia Romagna is a large, central Italian region focused on a wide array of gastronomic specialties. The plains of Emilia host four well-defined subzones for its famous, lightly sparkling red, Lambrusco. The more coastal Romagna has the capacity to produce impressive wines from Sangiovese and Albana.

Lambrusco

Imagine aromas of ripe black plum, raspberry, sweet mint and river cobble; on the palate arrives dry and refreshing dark cherry and a tiny bit of sparkling effervescence. That’s what a traditional, dry Lambrusco offers. But the mass-market demand of Europe and the USA turned the name Lambrusco into an anonymous, sweet, strawberry-tinged, quaffable juice. Enjoy the fun, sweet stuff if that’s what you like but it’s good to know that there are actually no less than ten distinct forms of the grape and a handful of exclusive DOCs created specifically for the unique character of some of the best of them. Today artisan producers are emerging to bring the dry aromatic style back and some large producers are responding by making dry styles too.

In the glass

The best Lambrusco come from Modena in the center of Italy and are rich in aroma, color and concentration. Colors range from deep purple to bright pink, rose and gold. Black fruit, sweet herbs, violets and crushed rock tend to characterize the darker versions while flavors of honey, apple, pear and vanilla arise from the lighter ones.

Perfect Pairings

A pizza and a hot day! Also cured meats, parmigiana and lasagna. Sweeter versions pair well with dessert.

Sommelier Secret

Serve a Lambruscho quite chilled to make the most of its fresh, thirst-quenching qualities. Lambrusco Grasparossa, Lambrusco Salamino and Lambrusco di Sorbara tend to produce some of the best quality wines.
