What the Critics' Say!

 BC Retail      $14.99      + 276105 (GL)Lambrusco DOC

“Raspberry colour with lots of mousse. Very fruity cherry, raspberry jam, spicy, floral aromas. Very fresh, dry, slightly tart palatewith foamy mousse. Earthy, tobacco, sour cherry, smoky, rhubarb flavours with a gamey note ... try with turkey or a duck canapé.
— Anthony Gismondi, 2011-11-20

This secco (dry) style Lambrusco is a fine and elegant young frizzante red wine made with Sorbara and Salamino grapes from it’s own DOC in Emilia-Romagna, central Italy. These indigenous varietals produce a delicious, refreshing wine to match the cuisine of the region, famous for Parmigiano, Prosciutto and balsamic vinegar of Modena.

Ruby red with rose reflections, aromas of fruit and violets combine elegantly. Distinctly dry, it exhibits unique and extraordinarily satisfying savouriness on the palate with a fresh, lively finish and superb balance.

It’s elegance and simplicity makes for extremely versatile pairing with many dishes, especially roasted meats, cheeses, any Italian cuisine, tapas and seafoods, and light salads.

Perfect with poultry and seasonal cuisine
