Wine Enthusiast has pre-released the tasting results of the Advanced Wine Buying Guide, which will be published for readers in the August / September issue of the magazine. Included among Italian tasting specialist Jeff Porter’s best buys is Cleto Chiarli Lambrusco del Fondatore 2021.
The 2021 vintage of Lambrusco di Sorbara continues to please the palates of wine critics around the world. Following top recognition for Vecchia Modena Premium 2021 as the world’s best Sparkling red at the Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championship, another Sorbara, Lambrusco del Fondatore takes the spotlight.
Jeff Porter describes our Lambrusco del Fondatore, “Candied cherries, strawberries, wild herbs and dried violets weave in and out of the glass with subtle hints of smoked game. The palate balances the savory quality of the wine with cherries jubilee, cranberry and dried rose finishing with a creamy texture and an elegant sparkle. Dalla Terra Winery Direct.
