Lambrusco di Sorbara DOC – Leclisse Paltrinieri
Forget everything you associate this word with. This wine might just open your mind to a new world of what Lambrusco can and should be.
Their Lambrusco di Sorbara, like any Lambrusco, is not a wine to be aged, it’s ready to be drunk now, young and fresh.
This is one of 3 styles we carry at Rimessa. Leclisse is dry, pale pink, with a very fine and persistent bubbles.
It smells of strawberries, raspberry and vanilla on the palate it is fresh, persistent and delicate with fruity notes
The Paltrinieri Lambruscos ferment all their sugars, creating dry wines without any residual sugars. Historically, Lambrusco is used to be a bit more sweet, partially because the acidity was lower. Sorbara, instead, has a naturally high acidity, creating beautiful dry, acidic, high quality and sophisticated Lambruscos.
"Wine without a story is just a fruit juice with alcohol" .... so below you'll find a video of the winemaker.
Don't forgot to turn on English subtitles.
