Subtly waxy with flinty lime grapefruit and lemon fruits. Stony nuances too. There's handy acidity and a crisp clean finish. Drink now. Screw cap.
Pretty depth of dark fruit in this with hints of flowers and fruit tea that follow through to a medium to full body, soft tannins and a juicy finish. Drink or hold.
The dried-strawberry, fresh-herb and perfume character is fresh and appealing. Medium body, firm and velvety tannins. Long and flavorful. Always excellent. Drink or hold.
Purity of fruit is really what this rosé-style of Lambrusco is all about with bright citrus peel, orange rind, cherry stones, lilacs and rose petals. Fine and linear on the palate with a delicate line of bubbles and acidity and a crunchy, mineral finish. Drink now.
