The Villa di Corlo estate and winery is located in the heart of Lambrusco country in Modena province, one of Italy’s greatest culinary destinations, known for its iconic food products like traditional balsamic vinegar and zampone and classic dishes like tortellini in brodo and tagliatelle al ragù.
Although this small winery also grows some international varieties, its primary focus is sparkling Lambrusco made from Lambrusco Grasparossa grapes that the estate grows itself (unusual for Emilia viticulture where many producers are négociants that get their grapes a variety of growers).
Sourced from vineyards that lie in the foothills at more than 300 meters a.s.l., Villa di Corlo’s Lambrusco di Grasparosso DOC is classic in style, with balance and restrained sweetness, a perfect pairing for the traditional salumi and ishes of Modena but also a wonderful match for pizza, American standbys like hamburgers, and Asian cuisine.
One of the things that sets Villa di Corlo apart from the crowd is that it has produced all of its own energy since 2012 when it installed solar panels to reduce its carbon footprint.
