Details

Lambrusco di Sorbara Radice Paltrinieri MAGNUM, Natural Wine, frothy pink wine from Emilia, unfiltered, rustic, full of flavour and bristling freshness and bubbles. Radice means roots, the roots of these old Lambrusco di Sorbara vines run deep, along with those of the Paltrinieri family. In fact back to the 20s when Achille started the winery. Sorbara gives rise to a flowering anomaly which the yields very low and the quality high. The grape has quite a pale hue giving rise to pinky wines with fresh rose character! Prosecco is dead, there is a new dawn.....Lambrusco!!! Delicious and interesting wine, impossible not to enjoy, particularly with some antipasti of salami and olives! Magnums are deceptive, they look a lot bigger than two bottles and seem to last a lot longer than two bottles, give them a try, great for an occasion.


This 17 hectare estate in the historic Cristo di Sobara has been managed by Alberto Paltrinieri since 1998, reviving the traditions of his grandfather. Lambrusco is a name that often makes British wine drinkers shudder, but the proper stuff is worlds away from what we are used to over here. Alberto's wines undergo natural refermentation in the bottle, and range from dry, light and vinous, to rich, off-dry sparkling reds. The wines aren't disgorged, but sold with their sediment in the bottle and no added preservatives, keeping the character of the wine in tact. His wines are sometimes described as love-children of wine and champagne, and I don't think that's far wrong!
