If you’re a fan of Vino, chances are you’re also a fan of Lambrusco. Our choice to champion the sparkling wines of Lini 910 three years ago kick-started a national Lambrusco reappraisal which shows no sign of slowing down.
Last Saturday Lini’s wines received high praise in the Wall Street Journal, where they were featured alongside those of other wineries in an article by Lettie Teague. In “Riunite Was Nice, but There’s More to Lambrusco”, the WSJ wine columnist analyzes the sparkling wine’s unusual status as arguably the most commonly misunderstood Italian wine among American consumers. She goes on to explain how true Lambrusco producers such as Lini are helping to reverse such misconceptions surrounding the wine.
The intrepid Ms. Teague traveled to three states to gather as many Lambrusco wines as she could get her hands on, which she then tasted with Michael Avella of Love Lane Kitchen, a restaurant in Mattituck, N.Y. Unsurprisingly (at least to us), Lini’s wines came out on top.
Ms. Teague liked the Lambrusco Scuro best, calling it “big, rich but still beautifully foamy.” Mr. Avella, who lived in Emilia-Romagna for the best part of a decade, had his own favorite: Lini’s Metodo Classico Rosso. “This is what I’m looking for,” he said. “It’s not complex, but it’s lively with a wonderful floral bouquet. And it dances. Lambrusco should always dance on your palate.”
But don’t take their word for it (or even ours): both wines (plus the full range of Lini 910 sparklers) are available at Vino. Take home a bottle (or two) today!
