Podere Il Saliceto Albone Lambrusco


Brother-in-law winemakers Gian Paolo and Marcello, who started the tiny Podere il Salecito estate in the classic Lambrusco area near Modena, work only with indigenous varietals like the traditional Lambrusco Salamino grape here. We had the pleasure of visiting with Gianpaolo at his estate this summer, watched him machete his way through the vineyard to clear out overhang (super high-tech), and taste through the full lineup of wines, which were outstanding. His ‘Albone ‘is everything we want in a Lambrusco, it's dry, luscious purply, chewy earth. With Lambrusco’s famous acidity and tartness, this is the wine you want with pizza, salumi, cheese or fried bits, as it'll cut through all that fat and clean your palate.

Made from 100% Lambrusco Salamino, this dry sparkling wine has notes of ripe cherry, blackberry, and blueberry, with hints of leather and stewed plum. It is full-bodied, effervescent, and fresh.
