It seemed like Lini was EVERYWHERE this holiday season!
Forbes called Lini Lambrusco one of “Four Great Bottles Of Bubbly To Pop On New Year’s Eve”.
Town and Country named Lini Lambrusco one of the best wines to pair with meat dishes (“From oysters and caviar to fried chicken, here’s what to eat with your next bottle of bubbly”).
Cooking Light included Lini Lambrusco in its sparkling wine buying guide.
And one of our favorite wine bloggers and wine educators, Tracy Ellen Kamens, Ed.D., DWS, CWE, posted tasting notes for two of her favorite wines by Lini.
Here’s what she had to say about the wines (below).
We hope you had a great holiday season! Looking forward to a sparkling 2020! Happy new year!
Lini 910 NV Lambrusco Rosé
Typical of the region, this wine is produced by the Charmat Method, the same method used in the production of Prosecco. This process retains the fresh fruit flavors of the grapes, which are present on the nose and palate of this lovely wine. Floral, fresh herbs and ripe cherries greet the nose and persist on the palate, with medium+ body, freshness and long length.
Lini 910 2006 Lambrusco Metodo Classico Rosso Millesimato
As a Metodo Classico wine, this Lambrusco was crafted using the Traditional Method, the same production technique used in Champagne, whereby the wine spends a significant amount of time in contact with the spent yeast (aka lees). Given its more complex production, this wine offered up beautiful notes of yeast, cherries and berries. The rich blackberry flavors were balanced with lively acidity and very long length.
