Quando si parla di bollicine su Jancis Robinson, non possono mancare i vini della Cantina Paltrinieri (enologi A. Pagli & Leonardo Conti, agronomo Stefano Dini).
“Paltrinieri, Radice Rosé Frizzante Secco 2014 Lambrusco di SorbaraSecondary fermentation in
bottle. From their own grapes, natural yeasts.
Pale wild salmon pink. Smells like nougat! Pistachio, wild rose petal, dusty fig. Very delicat sparkle, bone dry, and the pistachio nuts come through on the palate, edged with the
dustiness of nutmeg. Sharp cranberry juice with cutting acidity. Not much length – ideally drink
within the next six to eight months. (TC)11% Drink 2015-2016
Paltrinieri, Grosso Rosé Lambrusco Spumante Brut 2012 ModenaVery pale pink. Light, slightly
astringent scratchy bead. Bone dry and rather wan, pale flavours of cranberry. A little tired. I
think this might have been better drunk a year or two earlier. (TC)12.5% Drink 2013-2015
l Paltrinieri, Leclisse Rosé Frizzante Secco 2014 Lambrusco di SorbaraColour of coral. Paprika
and bresaola smell, vaguely floral, red-apple skin. Not nearly as charming as the 2013 was.
Quite sharp and earthy and sort of autumnal and mushroomy. Very hard work. It tastes tired.

Paltrinieri, Solco Lambrusco Frizzante Semi-Secco 2014 IGT dell’EmiliaDark mulberry-stain
purple. Decent persistence of bubbles. Farmyard and chocolate and Turkish Delight. Quite
grapey in flavour. Not as sweet as I was expecting. Bit of graphite, very ‘purple’ tasting. This
would probably go quite nicely with a bit of chilli chocolate, but there are better examples of
Lambrusco out there. (TC)11% Drink 2015-2016
