ABOUT OTELLO

GRAND­FATHERED IN

Our grandfather Otello had a passion for making quality Lumbrusco that appealed to everyone. Now the rest of the world is catching up.

80 years later, our family business remains committed to making Lambrusco that is versatile enough to be enjoyed on its own, chilled, over ice, or as a cocktail and enjoyed in whatever type of glass you want.

OUR MISSION

Otello Lambrusco is a reflection of our family's dedication to our craft and love of our home in Parma, Italy.

This is our tribute to the man who started it all.

Otello Cici's trattoria

EVERYONE LOVES AN ORIGIN STORY

Our grandfather Otello Ceci was a small trattoria owner who served his Lambrusco to his guests.

The new Otello Lambrusco

THE NEW STANDARD, FOR A NEW GENERATION

Created to honor Otello Ceci and to reintroduce Lambrusco to the world.

THE WINE

RED DIFFERENTLY

How It's Made

HOW IT'S MADE

Otello is made through the traditional Charmat method. This creates a dry, terroir-driven wine with a subtle, refreshing effervescence.

Where it Comes From

WHERE IT COMES FROM

We work with small, local growers to select the perfect grapes for our Lambrusco. We've curated a network of over 400 sites that allow us to source a complex combination for layers of flavor true to our home in Parma.

Otello Ceci

WHERE IT ALL STARTED

Otello Ceci owned a beloved trattoria in Parma, Italy. There he served regional favorites including Parmesan-Reggiano and Prosciutto di Parma. But it was his wine that stole the show.

Honor tradition but never become bound by it. Be fiercely passionate and equally generous. Value creativity, originality and fresh perspective and above all, never, ever stop innovating. Our great grandfather Otello lived by these principles.

80 years later, we, the third generation of the Ceci family, remain committed to his legacy of authenticity, quality and innovation. We knew this was our calling from a young age.

No one ever had to tell us. We are inspired by Otello's tenacity. We strive daily to be better. To do things differently. To do Red Differently.

THE WINE

WINE STYLE

Otello is a remarkably refreshing sparkling red wine. Slightly effervescent with notes of ripe strawberry, raspberry, dark plum and violet. It is medium-dry and full-bodied, with a smooth, velvety texture.

PAIRINGS

Pair with other classic Parma dishes like Parmesan Reggiano cheese or prosciutto. Our Lambrusco also has the perfect relationship with pizza.
