Lambrusco Grasparossa di Castelvetro Frizzante Secco

Fattoria Moretto

I have a pizza problem. It’s not that I can’t stop myself, but when faced with a steaming fresh-baked pie, its singed crust blackened and its buffalo mozzarella still gently bubbling from the wood-fired oven, why even try to resist? Moretto’s Lambrusco is the perfect pizza wine. Exuberantly frothy, this fizzy red smells so irresistibly fresh and fruity that I could fill a pool with it and splash around in utter bliss—provided there are also little rafts with floating pizzas. Crisp acid plus a brisk, earthy tannin make for an ultra-pure, clean finish that pops. Serve it cool and gulp away—with its 11.5% alcohol, there is no reason to hold back.

About Emilia-Romagna

Primarily dominated by the expansive plains of the Po Valley, Emilia-Romagna—a diagonal band stretching from Piacenza in the north all the way to Rimini in the southeast—also features a long span of Apennine Mountains and foothills, at the base of which lie its major cities such as Parma, Modena, and Bologna along the historic Via Emilia. While the flatlands are home to some viticulture, the Apennines provide elevation and ventilation in contrast with the hot, humid, stagnant valley below, in addition to poor, well-draining soils favorable to the production of more serious wines.

Given the rich local cuisine that relies heavily on lard, cheese, and fatty meats like pork, Emilia-Romagna is first and foremost a land of fizzy wines. These light frizzanti have the acidity to cut through fat along with a palate-cleansing sparkle. Most important is the indigenous red Lambrusco, a family of grapes whose wines brilliantly complement flavorful dishes such as tagliatelle al ragù, tortellini al brodo, or simple antipasti of local meats and cheeses like prosciutto di Parma, mortadella, and parmigiano reggiano (if you’re lucky, drizzled with traditional balsamic vinegar of Modena).

While Lambrusco’s image suffered in the past because of mass-produced sweet versions, small producers today are crafting traditional, terroir-driven dry wines that are absolutely mouth-watering. These jovial, food-friendly quaffers are right at home in the KLWM portfolio.
