label image label image

Tasting Notes

Made in the typical ‘amabile’ (slightly sweet) style with a pleasant touch of spritz on the palate. A blend of 45% Lambrusco Salamino, 40% Lambrusco Maestri, 15% Ancellotta, undergoes second fermentation in autoclaves with selected yeasts. at controlled temperature.

Ruby red color, with vinous hints of red fruits typical of Lambrusco. Fruity and full-bodied on the palate, well-balanced, supported by a lively freshness that elegantly closes with soft hints of cherry and plum. Rinaldini Lambrusco Amabile is a great match for hearty Italian foods including rich pasta dishes (lasagne or pasta bolognese), cold cuts and cheese. Fantastic when paired with red fruit desserts. Serve at approx 46-50°F.
