2019 Radice Sparkling Lambrusco
Situated in the heart of Sorbara, Paltrinieri is a family-run winery that has been crafting exceptional Lambrusco di Sorbara for three generations. Alberto Paltrinieri, along with his wife Barbara, tend 15 hectares of organic Estate vineyards in the historic area of Cristo, bordered by the rivers Secchia and Panaro.
The prettiest salmon hue, 'Radice' is Cristo in a bottle. A fresh and elegant sparkling Lambrusco, it oozes terroir with a clean nose of cherry, red fruits, roses and minerality before weaving a tapestry of wild strawberry, citrus, raspberry, grapefruit, apple, blood orange, French pastry, watermelon, rhubarb, peach, honey, minerals ... we could go on and on. Luxe, creamy texture and fine tannins tango across your palate. The fruit remained on lees for 60 to 75 days, then re-fermented in bottle with indigenous yeasts for around 90 days. Frothy crisp fizz. Yum.
