Lambrusco di Sorbora is the name of the grape variety itself; one of at least sixty different clones of Lambrusco – an ancient grape that may lay claim to being one of very few to have its roots in Italy itself. This delightful, sparkling rosé MoRosa is a slightly drier, and less tannic version than most Lambrusco, adding to its versatility. Rich with scents of pink grapefruit and cherries.
About this wine producer: When Francesco Vezzelli established his artisan winery in 1958, most Lambrusco growers were still polyculture farmers who sold their grapes at the local cooperative. If they made wine, it was only for friends and family. But beginning in the 1960s, more and more of the best growers began to estate-bottle their traditional wines, and today, fine authentic small-farm Lambrusco heads every list of the gastronomic treasures of Emilia-Romagna. Francesco’s son Roberto Vezzelli continues the work begun by his father, farming 16 hectares of vines on the mid-slope of the hills outside of Modena.
A wonderful somewhat dry rose with a bit of effervescence and fuller than expected flavors that is versatile and a great starter to every summer meal. Definitely will be buying more of this.
Every bottle - every "vintage," this is crazy good, dry Lambrusco that always surprises guests. Delicious!
