It’s always exciting to learn that someone liked your wine. It’s even more exciting when that person happens to be one of your favorite bloggers, Cara Rutherford, author of Caravino, one of the leading wine blogs out there (with a focus often on Italian wine).
Here’s what Cara had to say about the Lini Labrusca Rosé”
right ruby red in colour, with aromas of cherry, candied violet and watermelon. Juicy cranberry, red currant, strawberry, cherry, melon and herbs with a squeeze of citrus glide atop consistent fizz. Clean minerality and bright acidity sparkle, whilst a savoury edge compliments the caramel apple finish. So fruity, so refreshing, a fizzy summer essential.

Thank you, Cara!
Dave McIntyre is one of the top wine writers working in the U.S. today. And his wine column for the Washington Post is one of the country’s most respected resources for wine criticism. Last week, he awarded the Lini Lambrusco Labrusca Rosé three out of three stars — his top rating!
Lini 910 Labrusca Rosé NV
Three out of Three Stars
Lambrusco, a light-bodied, sparkling red, is Italy’s surprise partner to pizza, barbecue and charcuterie. This is the first rosé Lambrusco I’ve tried, and it’s a delight. Flavors of watermelon, strawberry and wild herbs make for a refreshing patio pounder, and if you’re not careful, you may finish it before the food is ready. And there are bubbles! This wine is new to the market, but it should get wider availability, especially if customers aren’t skeptical about trying a pink Lambrusco.
