Ca Berti "Robusco" Lambrusco Grasparossa di Castelvetro

SKU #1022339

This one is bubbly and addictive, a purple froth rises in the glass revealing an intense perfume of red fruits such as maraschino cherries and red currants with a note of zesty spice. The palate is reasonably dry, soft and quite persistent. Made from 85% lambrusco grasparossa and 15% malbo gentile.

The arrival of the spring months means, among other things, picnics and cookouts with generous platters of cold cuts, barbecued chicken, grilled vegetables, and a host of other marvels. What to drink with it all? Lambrusco! This one is one of my personal favorite. The purple froth on this is really amazing to watch rise in your glass. The intense perfume on the nose and the palate has lots cinnamon and clove spice. Black cherries, red currants and a hint of dustiness add to its complexity on the palate, give it a light chill and pour yourself a big glass.

I love the purple froth that bursts from the glass when the wine hits the bottom. Lovely bold, and powerful aromatics. In the mouth it is slightly sweet and the tannins make it seem much drier. The real key to this hand-harvested hilllside vineyard is the addition of 15% Malbo Gentile that really softens the tannins that normally dominate this wine and give it a really fun and flavorful finish. Serve it cold, have it with BBQ, burgers or just with your friends.
Drink from 2008 to 2010

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
