lambrusco bianco

Blood-stained Lini

Lini “Labrusca” Lambrusco Rosso (Emilia-Romagna) – Fresh fruit with grit. Or perhaps grittiness. Tart, sharp but not razor-like, vibrant, and soiled (in a good way). Giant platters of charcuterie could disappear in this wine’s company, to the benefit of both. (5/11)

Fresh white Lini

Lini “Labrusca” Lambrusco Bianco (Emilia-Romagna) – Flower-sweet (off-dry, really, but the lightness of the wine emphasizes the sweeter aspects), white-petaled, pure extract of summer fruit. (5/11)

Lini back

Lini “Labrusca” 2007 Lambrusco Bianco (Emilia-Romagna) – White flower petals, sweet green melon. Light and lively, but old-timey…an incandescent bulb radiating white light with a touch of yellow. Fun. (2/09)

Lini tower of Pisa

Lini “Labrusca” Lambrusco Bianco (Emilia-Romagna) – Fragrant. Green apples, acidity, and fun lightness. My first white Lambrusco; I didn’t even know they existed until I saw this bottle. (12/08)
