Name Lambrusco Grasparossa di Castelvero DOC Il Baluardo
Description Deep dark crimson in colour with hints of cherry and plum.
ABV 10.50%
Grape Lambrusco Grasparossa is just one of various Lambrusco varieties, grown around the town of Castelvetro di Modena.  Inky purple in color (flecked with crimson in the foam), it has pronounced aromas of violets, strawberries, fresh plums and black cherries. Fuller bodied and higher in alcohol than other examples, Grasparossa is also the most tannic of the Lambrusco varieties. The wine is robust enough to provide an excellent match for the local food specialty, zampone (stuffed pig trotter).
Region Lambrusco Grasparossa di Castelvetro is a sparkling red wine from the Emilia-Romagna region in northern Italy.
