2018 Castello di Luzzano Sommossa Bonarda Frizzante - Oltrepo Pavese, Lombardy, Italy
|Availability:||In stock (44)|
Say hello to Lombardy's answer to the ubiquitous Lambrusco from Emilia Romagna. This fizzy Bonarda is deeper, darker, firmer and drier than a typical Lambrusco from Emilia-Romagna to the southeast. Rasinous stewed fruit, notes of lilac and dried fig dominate the palate, followed by a bittersweet chocolate note. Despite its power and intensity, it's still refreshing with a nice effervescence on the finish. Pairs well cheese and charcuterie or pizza but can hold it's own alongside Ossobuco, stewed lamb or wild game.
