Rooting for Paltrinieri’s Radice: Lambrusco di Sorbara ‘rifermentato’ in bottiglia…

We’re updating the ‘Radice’ page on our site today and I had to get this corniness out of my system. ‘Radice’ is such a spot-on name for this wine. Many of you know Paltrinieri is famous in Italia for its charmat lungo of ‘Leclisse.’ And while I like that stylish wine, I’ve always tried to give succor to the forgotten soul that is ‘Radice.’

It seems even in stylish Italia, tastes may be changing. As I’ve ranted about before, the Italians, for the most part, like stylish, slightly modern wines. They’re not into rustic or old-school wines (that said, there is a small group of conoscenti that know or or I would have to move back to the States pronto).
