      “PIRIA” Lambrusco di Sorbara DOC 2019 secco

      Bright ruby red. In the fragrance a small fruit basket with red berries and cherries, delicately floral after violet. Rather full-bodied, very dry with fine fruit and extremely fine sparkling mousseux, lingers long, very finely balanced. The winery recommended it with tortellini in Brodo - we can only agree, perfect match. SUPERIORE.DE

      “SANT’AGATA” Lambrusco di Sorbara DOC 2018 secco

      Ruby red with bright violet reflections. In the fragrance inviting violets, red currants and wild strawberries. Also on the palate fine fruity, dry and crisp fresh with lively acidity and fine sparkling perlage. Brings freshness and drinking pleasure to every garden party. Fits perfectly to finger food, canapés, prosciutto & Co. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Fresh, bright pink; crushed, not fully ripe strawberries, mustard fruit; good acidity, unripe strawberries, dry, pleasant." Merum

      "There’s a wide array of stone fruit here with everything from nectarines to peaches to mirabelle plums. Quite frothy on the palate, but that works well in the context of the fleshy, tangy fruit. Medium-bodied, flavorful and colorful." James Suckling

      "Aromas of wild red berry, violet and rose waft out of the glass on this fragrant, fantastic sparkler. The vibrant, elegant palate doles out juicy strawberry, red cherry, orange zest and star anise before a dry finish. A lightly foaming mousse and bright acidity provide the food friendly structure. One bottle won't be enough." Wine Enthusiast

    • "RADICE" Lambrusco di Sorbara DOC 2019 secco

      “RADICE” Lambrusco di Sorbara DOC 2019 secco

      Out with the cliché, in with the surprise! Even the most famous Lambrusco plant of the Paltrinieris will fill every connoisseur with joy. Radice is produced using the Pét Nat method (Metodo Ancestrale) and therefore undergoes a second fermentation on its own yeast after bottling.

      This naturally cloudy wine convinces already on the nose with notes of rhubarb, a fresh citrus note and some bread. The persistent, fine perlage and its drinkable nature make it a racy companion for hearty, spicy antipasti, light meat dishes or simply a lively celebration in the midst of nature and happy people. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Pale salmon pink; pastry notes, fine rubbery, arouses curiosity; smooth foam, very fine, practically dry, fruit depth, length, very pleasant (with yeast)." (JLF) Merum

    • "LECLISSE" Lambrusco di Sorbara DOC 2018 secco

      “LECLISSE” Lambrusco di Sorbara DOC 2018 secco

      A genuine Lambrusco "Cru" from the 15 ha vineyard "Vigna del Cristo", which received a 2nd fermentation according to the Charmat method for 3 months in pressurized tanks.

      Salmon pink. Smells of pink grapefruit and subtle raspberries. Bold, fresh, lively and dry as dust on the palate - perfect for friends of "zero dosage". Very fine perlage, which also lasts for a long time. Sounds long after with finely tart fruit. Very fine as an aperitif, with mussels, oysters and cold fish starters. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Pale-bronze color here and a touch of pretty reduction gives an edge to the rose petals and tulips. Medium-bodied and bone-dry, drawing finely etched out bubbles in myriad shades of colorful acidity." James Suckling

      "Crisp and delicious, this vibrant wine has aromas of strawberry, orange zest and violet. On the savory palate, tangy acidity accompanies crushed red cherry, pomegranate, white pepper and star anise set against a polished mousse. A hint of bread crust lingers on the close." Wine Enthusiast

    About the winemakers
    Paltrinieri
    Emilia-Romagna
    Paltrinieri

    A vineyard with fifteen hectares of vineyards is almost ridiculously small in Emilia-Romagna. Nevertheless, Alberto Paltrinieri and his wife Barbara decided to continue the tradition of his grandfather, who founded the company in 1926. And yet to do almost everything in a completely different way.

    Nobody dared to press a pure Lambrusco in the late 1980s. Then, a little later, to go one step further and select grapes from individual vineyards, as in the French "Cru" system. The two dared to do so, bet on the extremely delicate and in need of care grape variety Sorbara, and went to almost unbelievable lengths in the slightly hilly country between the two rivers Secchia and Panaro. Working hours like in a Mosel steep slope. To produce Lambrusco. The "bubble" that had just reached the low point of his image. They were called complete nutjobs. Who wants pure Sorbara Lambrusco, and that from a single vineyard? Absurd. You can't earn anything with that.

    But quality prevails after all. And so it soon rained awards all the way to the coveted three glasses, the "tre bicchieri" of the famous Italian wine guide Gambero Rosso. It also brought reputation. Not only the Paltrinieris, but the whole region around Cristo di Sorbara. And slowly the wine world at Lambrusco no longer began to think of sweet dark supermarket sparkling wine, but of light, pink and above all dry Lambrusco, just a Sorbara. Fine fruity, with fine mousseux. In different variations, from Charmat pressure tank fermentation to the "Metodo Classico" spumante in bottle fermentation, as in Champagne.

    The relaunch was a success that hardly anyone would have believed in. And one of the pioneers was Paltrinieri. The portfolio ranges from Bianco with Trebbiano and white fermented Sorbara to the red Solco from the grape variety Salamino and the pure Sorbara. Lambrusco Sorbara in purezza. Forget everything you've ever heard about Lambrusco! SUPERIORE.DE
