Grapes: Lambrusco Salamino
Region/History Notes: Don’t think Riuniti jug wine when you hear the term “Lambrusco”! There are many high quality sparklers that taste nothing like what you normally see labelled as Lambrusco. Instead of the slightly spritzy and very sweet red, boutique Lambruscos have lighter bubble structure and are usually dry. These wines can range in color from white to rosé to fully red and are so fun to drink.
Tasting Notes: Delicate bubble structure with a fruity but dry palate and a creamy finish. White peaches, white flowers and honeydew make this bubbly an absolute pleasure to consume and is one of my “go-tos” for sparkling wine! Pair with… friends! Also great with crab dip or Chinese food.
