“SassoStorno”

Lambrusco Grasparossa Castelvetro DOP

Dry

The Lambrusco SassoStorno is the fruit of an excellent vineyard situated on the banks of the river Tiepido in Castelnuovo Rangone - born in one the many valleys formed in the past by stones crumbling from the mountains of the Apennines and
later transported downstream by the rivers.
An ancient vineyard, rich in vigor, hydrated from shadowing of the river, forms in the vineyard a fantastic blend, where the peculiarity of this soil yields a wine of a purple color, with great body, with distinct aromas of red fruits.
In addition, the choice of a cuvée formed by two vintages: maturity and structure are given by the aging of one year in a cask of steel from the previous harvest, coupled with the freshness and fragrance of the grape harvest in progress.
A wine that thanks to its powerful structure can be also perfectly paired to the finest red meats, other than being a wine well suited to all courses of Modena’s traditional cuisine.

"BrunoZanasi"

Lambrusco Grasparossa di Castelvetro D.O.P.
Dry

As reported on the tag hanging from the neck of the bottle, this wine represents the ultimate expression of the centenary tradition characterized by the highest selection of our grapes. A masterpiece of craftsmanship and nature. As soon as it is poured into the glass, the BrunoZanasi comes with a nice purple foam which introduces a wine with intense ruby red colour and a dense, almost impenetrable texture. There is pulp, there is very soft and spicy fruit, there is the result of excellent power and force, especially chromatic, in the vivid purple sparkling. Deep and impenetrable its visual and olfactory mount, supported by alcohol, which pushes its majestic mass of fully ripe fruit and intensely spiced. The scent is a mix of ripe red fruits, accompanied by a note of freshness, with the latter enhanced by the bubbles. In the mouth the perlage returns to tickle the tongue. Dry, the fruity notes accompany the wine also in the tasting phase, the freshness and the effervescence are well balanced by a sensation of moderate warmth and a slight and non-aggressive tannin. The BrunoZanasi fades nicely, keeping unchanged its balance even after you’ve swallowed the last sip from the glass. Ultimately a balanced and exquisite product, worthy expression of a territory which is revamping while maintaining strong ties with tradition. The color declares its great depth: not only the visual appearance, but in all its sensory manifestations, affirming its concentrated structure. A ripe plum compote which the vivacious sparks ignite on minty veins of eucalyptus, the fruity notes that softly push it the black of the cherry and cassis.
A fruit of great talents, powerful, persistent, with excellent roundness of flavour in its textured foam. Suitable for the whole meal, fits perfectly to international cuisine, and why not, with Neapolitan pizza with sausage and mushrooms.

From France the Phylloxera quickly spreads throughout Europe, literally destroying the vineyards.
