Cantina Puianello

Lambrusco Rosso

A gorgeous find was this Cantina Puianello Lambrusco Rosso Ancestrale from Emilia-Romagna in northern Italy. Gorgeous dark red in the glass with dry and creamy fine bubbles, notes of red fruit and spices. I’ve always been fond of dry Lambrusco, growing up a with extended Italian family it was common place at the dinner table. It’s a very versatile food pairing wine and with bubbles it cuts through rich foods. This is made in the Ancestrale method where it spent time fermenting in bottle and is unfiltered. I paired this with a comfort dish pancetta and chickpea pasta. Si, grazie!
