A blast from the past – Lambrusco

What other best way is to enjoy those upcoming summer evenings than to have a glass of bubbles with your friends.

We know Champagne is not an everyday drink, and along with Franciacorta they mostly fall into the pricey category. Cava, the Spanish sparkling wine, has been the greatest value so far in my option. Cava industry has gone through some severe revamping (introduction of Cava de Paraje Calificado system) and it’s been noticed pushing hard on export markets.

Prosecco seems a busy bee as well, since new classification Superiore di Cartizze with Rive subzones where voted above pyramid system.

Lambrusco from Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region enjoyed a fair share of fame in past. But it seems it still somewhere lost in peoples minds.

Some of the best quality Lambrusco’s are made by Radice, Cleto Chiarli, Marcello…
Among those Lambruscos I’ve tried this one, Vecchia Modena Lambrusco di Sorbara by Cantina Cleto Chiarli surprised me pleasantly.

The nose offers red cherries, orange peel, aromatic Polka raspberries. Dry, crisp acidity. Delicate mousse. Fresh crispy acidity balancing wide spectrum of red berries and violets.

100% Lambrusco di Sorbara variety / light maceration + slow fermentation

Cleto Chriarli et Figli is oldest family-owned estates in Modena DOC.
Lambruscos have become finer over time. Lower yields, clonal selection, and investments show excellent results. Next time in the shop, go ahead and discover Lambrusco. Great food-cheese wine and good value for money.

The Great Western Wine sells it for £13.95

Simply Wines direct – £12.99
