Paltrinieri ‘Radice’ Lambrusco Pét Nat  * Modena, Emilia Romagna, Italy 2017


Snap peas and dried flowers on the nose with just a hint of pickled ginger. Crisp pink grapefruit, tart plums and watermelon rind sprinkled with a dash of both salt and pepper on the palate. Lambrusco can bring the gamut of different fruits. But after those more aggressive flavors subside, I absolutely adore that you’re left with a whimsical touch of blueberry jelly beans on your tongue.

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.
