Fattoria Moretto Lambrusco Grasparossa di Castelvetro Secco 2021


Produced from organically farmed hillside vineyards just outside of Modena, Moretto’s Grasparossa is made for the notoriously rich cuisine of Emilia-Romagna, arguably the home of Italy’s finest meats and cheeses. The bone-dry finish features bracing acidity and chalky tannins, designed to cut through the fat of a mortadella sandwich or chunks of aged Parmigiano. You can’t go wrong pairing this sparkling rosso with virtually any dish from Emilian cuisine or a simple margherita pizza, but it also marries wonderfully with barbecue slathered in smoky sauce and carnitas seasoned with a bit of spice.

Serve it cool and plan smartly—at just 11.5% alcohol, a single bottle has been known to disappear before one’s thirst has been fully quenched.
