LambruscO'Clock. This modern version of the classic Lambrusco is perfect for those who enjoy a dry, fruit-driven wine with lively bubbles and extreme juiciness. The secret behind the unique taste of this wine is the blending of red and white skins. This results in a beautiful deep red color and a complex flavor profile with notes of dark berries, spices, and a touch of sweetness. What makes this wine even more special is that it is made using biodynamic principles and is eco-certified, which means that it is produced in a way that is respectful of the environment and the natural rhythms of the earth. The Lambrusco Grasparossa grapes are carefully grown in the Emilia-Romagna region, in the Colli Scandiano area. At RIO RIO studio, we don't like rules, so drink this Lambrusco exactly whenever you feel like it's LambruscO'Clock and with any food you think it pairs well with. We think it's great to enjoy it as an aperitif with snacks or charcuterie, or pair it with a light pasta dish.
Here's a little historical overview of Lambrusco: Lambrusco is a sparkling red wine that originates from the Emilia-Romagna region in Italy. It has a long history dating back to the ancient Romans, who were known to have grown the Lambrusco grape variety. Throughout history, Lambrusco has been enjoyed by the noble families of Italy. In the 1970s, Lambrusco became a popular drink in the United States and other parts of the world due to its affordable price and unique taste. However, it gained a negative reputation due to the mass production of low-quality, sweetened versions.
Today, there has been a resurgence of interest in high-quality, dry Lambrusco made with traditional methods, especially in Italy where it is a staple drink for many locals. It has also regained popularity in other parts of the world, particularly among wine enthusiasts who appreciate its authentic and unique taste and versatility in pairing with a wide range of dishes. The rise of natural and organic wines has also contributed to the renewed interest in high-quality, artisanal Lambrusco made with traditional methods. Some wine experts even consider it to be one of the most underrated wines in the world.
