2020 Fuorleggero Lambrusco
Lillipilli, riberry, goji, terracotta pots and apple skin. Tangelo! Pink fizz at its finest! Such a wild wine that instantly transports you to the farmhouse in Italy, clanking and sloshing this wine with smiling faces all around. The perfect aperitivo wine.
Cinque Campi is an assortment of vineyards scattered amidst the Reggiano Appennine Mountains farmed by the same family for over 200 years. Wow. What? Vanni Nizzoli leads the estate these days, returning the vineyard to its organic roots in 2003, after a brief spell without. He has been mad about showing the “true” Lambrusco, a stunningly complex, vibrant style of wine that reflects family and culture and real living. Everything has a real raw and realness to it, mainly because of the wild varieties he uses, but also just his commitment to energy and rusticity within the bottle.
