Paltrinieri ‘Radice’ Pét Nat
Modena, Emilia Romagna, Italy 2017
Lambrusco di Sorbara
Looks pink, smells more like white, tastes like a red. Point of fact, this actually is considered a red wine. Alberto Paltrinieri, nicknamed ‘Paltro’, and his family has been doing their thing for three generations here and feel like the groundwork done is finally starting to come together. He has been unwavering in his dedication to excellence in his Lambruscos and he and his wife Barbara are the ultimate champions of down home hospitality. The Radice, as delicious as it is, is the gateway wine to the rest of their more serious bottlings. All the acid and structure one could want, in a pretty rosé color to boot and none of that grape soda headache juice of old.
