Rinaldini Pjcol Ross Lambrusco Brut NV

Emilia-Romagna, ItalyForget about the sweet and candied Lambruscos of your past. This is serious, dry, handmade metodo classico (traditional method) from the ancient, rare and endangered original Lambrusco grape: pjcol ross. The Rinaldinis are the only producer of pjcol ross varietal wines today, a grape that exists in only three vineyards. It was rediscovered by Rinaldo Rinaldini in the 1970s when he took over the vineyard. This tiny family owned winery is between Reggio Emilia and Parma in Emilia-Romagna at the foothills of Matilda de Canossa. Savoury and earthy, with dark earth, wild herbs, roasted beets, menthol, wet cement, with gentle bubbles and a cement/stone texture. Very different.Tasted: 16 June 2022Tasted by: Prices:
