Lambrusco is a wine with special and unique peculiarities and one of the most original and excellent wines. Modena is the Lambrusco birthplace and homeland, as a great collection of historical documents testifies. Lambrusco is the name of a group of common-root vines, similar among them but not exactly alike, and Modena is actually the place where the noblest grape qualities have grown, the authentic Lambrusco aristocracy; these varieties – clearly identified by historic evidence – can be rightly considered as the “ancestors” of the three AC Lambrusco kinds protected by the consortium. Deep red ruby colour, with violet hues and light froth with edges of the same shade. It goes well with main courses topped with meat sauce, baked pasta, roasts, cold meats, cheese, including fermented cheese, and in general con with all the traditional main courses of Emilia. It grows in the high plain and hill dry lands of Modena, dominated by elegant villas and ancient castles, where the Apennine chain with Mount Cimone serves as a frame to a gentle landscape of rare beauty. In terms of surface lithology, the area bounded by disciplinary measures can be subdivided into two different parts: a hilly and a sub-hilly areas. In the proper hilly land, surface soils are slightly permeable, hardly productive and cultivable, since they are made of sandy or marly clay and scaly clay with limestone blocks of any size. Here,  Lambrusco Grasparossa production is not so abundant but still of good quality with marked features. In the sub-hilly area, lands are made of silts and muddy sand placed on a gravelly bottom, therefore offering good permeability. In these lands, Lambrusco Grasparossa wine grants a more abundant production, but its characteristics are not so different from the variety of Lambrusco grown in the hills. It is worth noting that this autochthonous vine has “come down” from the native hill to the sub-hilly area below due to a particular microclimate and a special type of soil, but it has never developed in the plain.
