Villa Cialdini Lambrusco Gasparossa DOC

NV

In a Nutshell

Fantastically perky Lambrusco for those preferring a punchier style

Tasting Notes

Ruby red in colour, with plenty of bright bubbles. On the nose it has a fresh, pronounced and very fine fruity scent. On the palate the wine is delicate, tangy and well-balanced, with pleasant refreshing acidity, floral notes and forest fruits on the finish.

Production Notes

The Grasparossa grapes are picked at the end of September. Soft pressing of the grapes and immediate refrigeration is followed by settling and filtration. The must is preserved in stainless steel vats which are refrigerated at 0°C. After the initial fermentation, the second fermentation takes placed in sealed, pressurised vats at 16-18° C for 90 days. The wine is stabilised at -3°C and Isobaric cold bottling of the wine is obtained with the Method Charmat.

Press Quotes & Awards

Wait! Don't see the word Lambrusco and move on to the next wine. This is the red sparkling version and it’s a beauty. Deep cherry and floral freshness with an earthy beetroot bite and perky bubbles, it's a wine that puts a smile on your face and this is an excellent example of this rare (but becoming less so) style, made with the local grape Grasparossa. 90 points

The Wine Gang, “February report”, TheWineGang.com, 8 February 2017

Persistent mousse with just the right sweetness to balance exquisite forest fruit and a delicate, fresh structure. A fine example to enjoy with a variety of foods. 90 points
