Red Grape Varietal: Lambrusco Sorbara
Lambrusco di Sorbara is a red wine appellation that was awarded its DOC classification in 1970. It is situated north of Modena near the village of Sorbara in northern Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region. The Sorbara is regarded as the highest-quality Lambrusco wine, mainly due to its more concentrated taste.
Sorbara is the lightest in colour of the Lambrusco wines, offering an evanescent sparkle and distinctive bouquet reminiscent of violets. Sorbara is also the most acidic of Lambrusco wine, making it exceptionally good with fatty or grilled foods, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and lasagna.
