May 2021 Wine Club Other Red

Published by |

Normally, Susan’s Wine Club offers one white and one red wine each month, but this month we’re offering a lighter red variety you might not have tried in many years, that replaces our white selection.

The story of Molo 8 began in 1921 with Quitico Decordi Sr. and his family who made their living in a small, family-run eatery that was known for serving the favorite local dishes. In addition to his fabulous food, Quitico began producing his own wine to serve in his restaurant. The local acclaim for the wines was so great that the family started focusing their efforts on winemaking, moving from simple house wine to crafting artisanal wines produced from local grapes. The Decordi’s reputation for producing great wine grew and with it so did demand. In 1950, the family built a new winery.

Today the winery continues to innovate and has received the prestigious UNI EN ISO 14001 environmental certification. This international certification is designed to recognize organizations that work to minimize how their operations affect the environment and take steps to continually innovate to prevent adverse changes to the air, water, and land.

This 100% Lambrusco comes from Mantova in the province of Cremona. The grapes are vinified in stainless steel to preserve freshness and fragrance. This is an aromatic wine that is fruity and pleasantly sweet on the palate.

This wine pairs well with cheese, ham, salami, pork or cold cuts.
