Lambrusco di Sorbara has been appreciated since the 19th century. It’s native to the central plains of Modena between the Secchia and Panaro rivers and is grown there in abundance. Its flowers are physiologically feminine and its short, twisted stamens mean that this variety needs a pollinator, a role most often played by Lambrusco Salamino, which is usually planted among it. The wines obtained from Sorbara are usually dry or off dry, light or deep cherry red in colour, with floral notes of violets and roses. These are lightly sparkling wines with nice acidity, fruit notes of blueberries and cherry and they go very well with the pork products common in this area.
