2022 Lambrusco, Pizzini Sparkling Red
Pizzini is a family-owned winery in the King Valley wine region in northeast Victoria, a region home to many Italian families.
Using the premier Lambrusco Salamino clone, grapes were handpicked and then crushed into an open fermenter. The skins stayed in contact with the juice for 2 days before pressing. Long enough to enhance flavour and colour in the wine. After pressing, the juice continued to ferment at low temperatures to retain freshness and fruit flavours before being prepared for traditional bottle fermentation to finish.
Lightly sparking and ruby red in colour, our Lambrusco Salamino is soft, approachable and beautifully balanced. On the palate the wine is fresh and dry with an explosion of textural notes that recalls the bottle fermentation techniques used. A drink anywhere, anytime style. Not too sweet and not too dry. Brilliantly served with mosts foods including cold meats & is also personal best served chilled...
