Poderi Fiorini Becco Rosso Lambrusco
Producer: Poderi Fiorini
Varietal: Lambrusco Grasparossa
Region: Modena, Emilia-Romagna, Italy
Whatever your misgivings regarding Lambrusco are, we ask you to set them aside. This is an inky dark, dry incarnation of the assertive Grasparossa clone, with plenty of tannin and acidity. Served cold, this is the ideal accompaniment to charcuterie, hard cheeses, olives, and anchovies. It also makes a visually and gastronomically stunning base for a cocktail.
Three generations of the Fiorini family, whose roots have grown in this abundant and prosperous land since time immemorial, have been practicing the art of winemaking since 1919. The Fiorini’s deep affection for their local area has been handed down from generation to generation and the current family is no less inspired. They farm their vineyards organically, and their Lambrusco is méthode champenoise, yielding a roundness and depth unparalleled by commercial Lambrusco.
