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.

Cantine Cavicchioli Winery Video

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.

A good quality, traditional, dry Lambrusco offers aromas of ripe black plum, raspberry, sweet mint and river cobble; on the palate, black cherry mingles with a slight effervescence. Enjoy the sweet, strawberry-tinged, quaffable stuff if that’s what you like but in the Italian region of Emilia-Romagna there are no less than ten distinct forms of the grape and a handful of zones dedicated to each unique character. Somm Secret—Today an increasing number or artisan producers are emerging to bring the dry, aromatic style back into fashion.
