Tasting Notes

This frizzante hails back to Lambrusco’s roots, or radici - referencing pre-1950s Lambrusco, when the wine was traditionally fermented in the bottle. Made with free-run juice and fermented with native yeasts. Slice up some salumi and get the water going for some gnocchi

Staff Pick Notes

Grapefruit, tangerine zest, sour cherry, raspberry, strawberry, white peaches, and delicate rose petal are some of the aromas you might get from this incredibly fresh and bright, dry as "Curb Your Enthusiasm in the Kalahari Dessert" bottle of wine. Made from 100% Lambrusco di Sorbara grapes, ideas of Lambrusco of the past will fade with this turbid, salmon-hued glass of creamy bubbles. Farmed on 17 ha in the historic area of Cristo di Sorbara and using free-run juice from a soft pressing, the juice is delicate and the primary aromas are featured. Secondary notes of brioche and toast evolve from the secondary fermentation in the bottle from natural, ambient yeast, which aids the rounded texture. If you tell me you don't like Lambrusco, I might be able to change your mind with one sip...and maybe a plate of prosciutto.
