LAMBRUSCO DI SORBARA
Lambrusco grapes have been cultivated in Emilia-Romagna since at least the time of Etruscan civilisation. Lambrusco is most commonly recognised as a sweet, sparkling red wine. However, Paltrinieri’s Radici demonstrates the potential of the Lambrusco di Sorbara grape. Paltrinieri use sustainable farming methods, native yeasts, and a classical fermentation method – as indicated from the bottle’s name “Radici”, which in English translates to “roots” – to produce this stand-out gem. The Radici presents sourly, with notes of grapefruit and an acidic bite. A vibrant, linear wine that boasts aromas of wild strawberry, violet, red cherry and grapefruit that carry through to the slightly sparkling, savory palate that is lifted by its crisp acidity.
