Daniele Cernilli aka Doctor Wine is one of Italy’s greatest wine experts and critics. He’s also the editor of the highly popular “Essential Wines of Italy” guide.
We couldn’t have been more thrilled to learn that he featured Lini’s Lambrusco Metodo Classico in his new video series, “Quarantine Wines” (episode 16, below).
In the video (in Italian), he notes that while there are other examples of classic method Lambruscos made using the same technique employed by winemakers in Champagne, Franciacorta, and Trento, there’s only one that ages its wines on its lees for 10 years or more. He compares the Lini to some of the greatest sparkling wines of the world. The only difference, he notes, is that it’s a red wine, with great body. And so it’s ideal for pairing with grilled and roast red meats, making it a truly distinctive experience for the sparkling wine lover.
Cernilli and his editors named the Lini Lambrusco Metodo Classico as “best in its class” in the latest edition of the guide. And Cernilli himself recently said of the metodo classico: “It’s not only the best Lambrusco of the year, it’s one of the best ever.”
