Tenuta Pederzana "Grasparossa" Lambrusco di Castelvetro Semisecco Frizzante 2009
Castelvetro, a medieval village in Emilia Romagna destroyed in 1501 by a catastrophic earthquake, is the native land of the Lambrusco Emiliano. Castelvetro has since been restored and boasts the distinct character of the Lambrusco region . In the surrounding hills of Castelvetro, lies Solignano Vecchio, where Tenuta Pederzana continues to produce spectacular wines. The Founder, Franco Simonini immediately fell in love with the land, purchasing the estate following the second war. Signore Simonini, has held a vast knowledge of local vine-growing practices for which Tenuta Pederzana represents a prestigious point of reference for Grasparossa experts of the area.
The current owners, the Gibellini brothers, continue the great legacy of the Pederzana name. The family-owned estate includes: Francesco Gibellini, the enologist, as their father Mauro, and also Uncle Massimo who executes logistics of the business. The vineyards consist of nearly seven hectares and are located on the edge of the forest and near a large lake “Lago Verde” which provides a spectacular view with the autumn hues of vivid yellow, orange and deep red. The cantina itself was recently constructed incorporating modern wine making technologies and has been designed to best serve the estate and vineyard’s location in the hills. The Tenuta Pederzana continues the passion and practice of quality and tradition in delivering their wine from Castelvetro, Solignano Vecchio.
