I Quercioli Lambrusco Dolce NV Reggiano, Medici Ermete
I Quercioli Dolce is a sparkling sweet red wine crafted using the natural fermentation method. From Reggio Emilia province, the grapes are grown on Cordone Speronato (cordon trained spur pruned) vines in clay soil and with restricted yields. The wine is a blend of Lambrusco Salamino and Lambrusco Marani. It was awarded a Gold Medal in the Mundus Vini Competition and Wine Spectator said "Creamy on the palate, with juicy acidity enlivening the ripe fruit notes of marbled cherry and crushed boysenberry, showing accents of vanilla, cola and smoke. Fine and balanced through to the spiced finish." This wine is best served chilled.
This is a delicious, sparkling red that has just the right amount of sweetness. It has wonderful acidity which makes it a great food wine but could also definitely be enjoyed on it's own. Very well balanced and so refreshing.
