K&L Notes

Fabio Lini, the enologist at Cantina Lini, makes this wonderfully light, bright Lambrusco by not allowing any contact with the skins during fermentation. His "Labrusca" Bianco was inspired by the wines that local farmers made in Fabio's youth. Labrusca Bianco "has a scent of red apples and white grapes," writes Ray Isle, wine editor for Food & Wine Magazine, "and a racy zestiness that makes it an ideal aperitif wine." According to the L.A. Times: "'Labrusca' from Fabio Lini and family, who have been making the stuff since 1910, it can be a thing of rare beauty. Rich and lush, lightly sparkling and low in alcohol, it's a perfect picnic wine for a hot summer day, great with salumi or your finest prosciutto, lusty pasta dishes and juicy grilled sausages."

I love this refreshing slightly sparkling (frizzante) white Lambrusco. It's full of crisp green apple, stone fruit, vanilla, and a touch of toasty yeast. Such a unique wine and now I'm hooked. http://enotecamarcella.wordpress.com/

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
