(2016) Wine Enthusiast 91 - Violet, wild rose and woodland berry aromas lead the nose in this lively, polished and joyful wine. The lightly sparkling palate doles out red cherry, crushed strawberry, candied tangerine zest and ginger hints. Crisp acidity lends a clean, dry finish.
A lively Lambrusco full of a mixed bowl of red berried fruits. Just the right sparkling red wine to serve with your next plate of salumi. This comes from the area of Sorbara and the Lambruscos from this area render a ruby-colored sparkler. To open this unusual closer, slide the foil cutter of a wine key (or a butter knife) on the side of the metal clamp and gently pry it open.
Forget all the myths you have heard about Lambrusco being a sweet bubbly cartoon wine—they are false. Lambrusco in recent years has been known by the people who like Moscato as a fun red alternative. Traditionally, this is just not the case, and now the traditional style is making a comeback. This wine is a rose-colored masterpiece-bright and extremely enjoyable! This is a bottle that is sure to turn any get-together into a party and will please even the snobbiest of wine drinkers. Heaps of pink fruit and lively citrus on the nose with minerality and sunshine notes to boot. Pair with salami and hard cheese or whatever makes your sweet soul happy!
