HISTORY: Founded in 1910, Lini 910 is a fourth-generation, family-owned and operated winery, producer of Emilia's leading wines including the first-ever Lambrusco included in Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of Italy. Thanks to his longstanding relationships with growers and deft hand, winemaker Fabio Lini has set the benchmark for artisanal Lambrusco.
VINIFICATION: For the production of Lini's classic Martinotti-method Lambrusco (also known as Charmat-method Lambrusco), a still Lambrusco is produced and then racked to pressurized, temperature-controlled tanks where the second fermentation is provoked. The wines are then aged on their lees until the desired complexity and nuance are achieved.
TASTING NOTES: Lini's wines are renowned for their signature freshness and classic dry character. Bright Red & Black berry aromas, with some herbaceous notes. On the palate this wine is balanced and Creamy in texture, delivering lightly tangy acidity layered with well-meshed notes of Candied Black Raspberry, Black Cherry, Redcurrant, Star Anise and Thyme, along with a hint of Green Olive. Refreshing on the palate with vibrant crunchy Black Fruit acidity & minerality. The clean, but lingering finish makes this an ideal pairing for a wide variety of cuisines.
