Description

Cavicchioli 1928, Prosecco

Robust Lambrusco varietal grapes—there are many sub-varieties, but the wines themselves are almost always fizzy, fruity, and red— are cultivated for a wine of the same name in central-northern Italy in the Emilia-Romagna region. The Lambrusco is the principal grape grown in three Emilian provinces: Modena, Parma, and Reggio nell’Emilia. To be sure, the Lambrusco grape is cultivated elsewhere in Italy (Piemonte, Trentino, and Basilicata), but this Emilian trio of provinces comprise the epicenter of a wine that first captured American palates in the 1970s and has continued to the present.

Flavors of:

  • Pear, green apple
  • Citrus, lemon, grapefruit
  • Honey, stone, minerals
  • Cream, yeast, cheese
  • Straw, gooseberry, hay

If you are looking for a sparkling wine that is not overly sweet, this is the one for you. Delicate bubbles with white peach, pear, and apple on the palate. This would be perfect for a holiday get together! And the price is the best part!

Winemaker

Robust Lambrusco varietal grapes—there are many sub-varieties, but the wines themselves are almost always fizzy, fruity, and red— are cultivated for a wine of the same name in central-northern Italy in the Emilia-Romagna region. The Lambrusco is the principal grape grown in three Emilian provinces: Modena, Parma, and Reggio nell’Emilia. To be sure, the Lambrusco grape is cultivated elsewhere in Italy (Piemonte, Trentino, and Basilicata), but this Emilian trio of provinces comprise the epicenter of a wine that first captured American palates in the 1970s and has continued to the present.

Famed for their Lambrusco wines, the Cavicchioli family has been cultivating vines in the San Prospero province of Modena (Sorbara DOC) for more than a century. Still, it was not until 1928 that Umberto Cavicchioli began bottling the wine under his family name. Since then, the family’s focus on vineyard ownership, low yields, and DOC production has been key in establishing Cavicchioli as one of the few leaders in high-quality Lambrusco and Sparkling wines. The pleasure all Cavicchioli Lambruscos and Sparkling wines offer to underline the family’s philosophy: “Life is sweet.”

Umberto’s two grandsons, brothers Sandro and Claudio, are still part of the business today: Claudio looks after the family business’s commercial side, and Sandro is the Winemaker. The Cavicchioli family is among the largest landowners in the Modena DOC, with 235 acres of vineyards, of which 173 acres are of the prized Sorbara variety. Here, the climate is always humid with cold winters and hot summers, and vineyards are planted in the pergola system to keep the vines dry.

Modena remains the center for the production of quality Lambrusco. To the North of Modena are the Po River Delta’s fertile plains, resulting in the richest agricultural center in Italy. Here, the Sorbara and Salamino varieties grow on soils of alluvial origin rich in sand and clay, resulting in delicate wines, which are extremely fragrant and light in the case of Sorbara in color. To the South of Modena, and around the town of Castelvetro, are the Apennines’ foothills where sloped vineyards lay on poorer, rocky soils ideal for the Grasparossa. Wines from this variety are denser, darker, more structured, and made in the dry or abboccato (off-dry) style.
