Gibe Lambrusco Grasparossa di Castelvetro DOC
Emilia Romagna

Gibe is the winery most feminine and elegant wine. Made exclusively from the original strain of Grasparossa, which is characterized by the distinctive bright red color of the stalks and pedicels. This wine expresses itself well even when young, but with some months in the bottle, its characteristics become more refined. It can easily age two to three years in a cold cellar. Gibe is the nickname of the Gibellini family.
