Best Italian Sparkling Red 2018 ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous
Probably not a wine you've tried before, the Medici Ermete Permento Frizzante Secco Rose is a delight on the palate, and surprisingly versatile. From the fecund Emilia-Romagna region, this beautiful bubbly delivers crisp acidity, white fruit and floral notes, and a hint of earthiness in its hearty flavors and weight. We say top off your glasses and dive into some assorted salumi with a classic Italian bagna cauda on the side ("hot bath" in Italian, it's a warm dip made with garlic and anchovies into which a variety of raw veggies and bread can be dipped). From there we would urge you to refill your glasses to go with a classic fish and chips. The lovely acidity of this Medici Ermete is perfect for fried foods. Instead of ketchup with the fries, we suggest a cider vinegar aioli. Whip up your favorite vegetable pasta dish as an alternative. Or, if you're channeling your inner Italian, make it a decadent dish of eggplant parmigiana. Cincin winelovers!

Antonio Galloni's Vinous: "Lightly opaque pink-orange. Multilayered aromas and flavors of apple sauce, pear nectar, earth tones, white flowers and redcurrant jelly. Deep, dense and juicy, with a long, complex finish that is both herbal and fruity, and complicated by a peppery twist. Named a ”Lambrusco metodo ancestrale” on the label (meaning it was fermented in the bottle), this opaque bubbly is quite unlike anything else Medici Ermete does but is a real knockout. 100% Lambrusco di Sorbara. Drink 2018-2020." Jun 2018

Through the Wine Looking Glass: 2018 in Review: Awarded Best Italian Sparkling Red Wine of the Year. "Made by secondary fermentation in the bottle, this cloudy Lambrusco di Sorbara showcases just how complex Lambrusco wines can be."  Ian D'Agata, Antonio Galloni's Vinous

Winery:  "Colour: deep pink with fine perlage. Bouquet: raspberry, red fruits. Taste: dry, fruity and vibrant. Froth: fine, rich and persistent. Perfect to accompany dishes like charcuterie, vegetarian or fish tempura."
