Buy Cavicchioli Lambrusco Grasparossa di Castelvetro Col Sassoso
Col Sassoso has an intense, violet-colored froth with vivid cherry-fruit and baking spice aromas. The bright acidity, astringent tannins and refreshing, long-lasting finish make this a fantastic foil to cured meats, aged cheeses and grilled meats.

Col Sassoso, “Rocky Hillside”, takes its name from the location of the Grasparossa vineyards: the rocky foothills of the Apennines, in the locality of Castelvetro, south of Modena, where this variety performs best. This 85% Grasparossa and 15% Salamino is sourced from selected Grasparossa vineyards in Castelvetro.
Wine maker notes
Hand-harvest occurs in the middle of October for the Salamino and at the end of October for the Grasparossa (the last Lambrusco variety to be harvested). Each variety is fermented separately. The Grasparossa fruit is fermented at 65°F for seven days with skin contact. The wines are then blended and the resulting wine undergoes secondary fermentation in autoclave at 55°F to achieve effervescence. The result is an intensely colored wine with violet notes and deep and dark fruit aromas.

Food pairing
Charcuterie, pasta dishes with meat sauces, boiled meats and red roasts. Excellent with cheeses.
