*Disclaimer: I received this wine as a sample from Fredrick Wildman.
Boo! Long time no see. Life, at times, gets in the way of things we want to do. As you know, I spent several weeks furloughed, which zapped my energy as I am not used to spending all day every day chasing after an almost 3 year old, then I had to travel to a funeral, and then off for a fun visit to family. Thus, my absence. But I’m back with a what I consider just a lovely wine that pairs well with jumping up to answer your door all evening. Tonight we chose the Lamberti Sparkling Rose to grace our Champagne flutes. The Lamberti retails for about $14 and has a traditional Champagne closure.
Four takeaways from this wine:
1.) Honestly, I had to keep checking to make sure this was really a $14 wine.
2.) The color on this wine is quite pretty.
3.) Not only for Halloween, this wine would be excellent with a large upcoming meal involving turkey.
4.) Seriously? $14? You are seriously winning something with this wine at that price.
On the nose I got raspberry, jello, yeast, and flowers. The nose is light and delicate and the color is so pale and pretty. My pictures do not do it justice, at all. I’m a pretty terrible photographer. In the mouth I got raspberry jello, cherry, and raspberry. I found the wine to be bright with good acidity and a nice mousse. I love it.
