Lambrusco Reggiano Secco DOC

Tasting Notes

Lambrusco is a grape, or rather a family of grapes, that produce fun wines with intense fruity aromas. The Rinaldini Reggiano is produced in a ‘secco’ (dry) style, with aromas of wild red berry, blackberry and a grapey note. Lively acidity and a salty sensation balance the fruit flavors.

You can enjoy Lambrusco with a veriety of dishes, pasta, pizza, coldcuts (especially prosciutto di Parma), lasagne and Parmigiano Reggiano, all staples of the great foods of Emilia Romagna. You can also enjoy it lightly chilled for a perfect summer drink.

Rinaldini Reggiano has recently introduced a new packaging which has been featured in the Nov 2017 issue of Wine Enthusiast Magazine (rated 87 points)
