    • "Rosé del Cristo" Metodo Classico Sorbara DOC 2015 Brut

      “Rosé del Cristo” Metodo Classico Sorbara DOC 2015 Brut

      Not a Lambrusco, but a very elegant sparkling wine made from Lambrusco di Sorbara grapes fermented on the yeast: distinguished pale pink colour, delicate scent of rose hip and a hint of wild strawberry and raspberry. On the palate a beautiful freshness with a fruity long finish and great structure. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bread dough, rose petal and violet form the delicate, inviting nose along with a whiff of herb. On the tangy palate, bright acidity accompanies strawberry, grapefruit and tangerine drop, while a creamy mousse lends finesse." Wine Enthusiast

    About the winemakers
    Cavicchioli U. & Figli
    Emilia-Romagna
    Cavicchioli U. & Figli

    As with many Italian wineries, the history of Cavicchioli begins with the cultivation of grapes sold to a cooperative or other wineries. It was not until 1928 that Umberto Cavicchioli, the grandfather of today's generation, thought about changing his workshop and making his own wine, because he was sure that his grapes could deliver a better quality. In San Prospero, a village near Modena, he observed the stars and pressed his Lambrusco grapes himself, fermented them in barrels and filled his wines when he thought the moon was right.

    Over the years, his Lambrusco di Sorbara has become a model wine for the region. After the Second World War, the company was rebuilt, already with the help of his four sons, to whom he bequeathed the now considerable company in 1964. In the 1970s the company began to export successfully and continued to grow. Umbertos son Piergiorgio became a pioneer of the Lambrusco Renaissance with the Lambrusco di Sorbara "Vigna del Cristo", a single layer Lambrusco.

    The quality claim of the grandfather to whom the Cavicchiolis owes its fame has always been maintained. Even when Gruppo Italiano Vini took over in 2010, Umberto Cavicchioli's grandchildren remained in charge of the company. Claudio as plant manager and Sandro as oenologist.

    The vineyards are always the basis of quality, which is why they are located northeast of Modena in the direction of the Po Delta, on the gentle foothills of the banks, on Sorbara and Salamino grapes, on limestone marl and sandy alluvial land, perfect for light, delicate and elegant wines. To the south, near Castelvetro, the soils are rocky, barren, with the Apennine foothills in the background. Here grows the variety Grasparossa, perfect for the fuller, darker Lambrusco. Basically, the microclimate is rather humid, which is why many of the vineyards are planted with pergola to improve the aeration of the grapes.

    The reintroduction of sparkling production according to the so-called "Metodo Classico", i.e. classical bottle fermentation, is ambitious. In particular, the "Rosé del Cristo" Sorbara DOC 2012 Brut, pressed from Sorbara grapes, caused enthusiasm and high ratings among wine critics. SUPERIORE.DE
