Riunite Lambrusco Rose Premier

Member Review by Aegelis:

As a long time fan of both Riunite's Lambrusco and the Rose, I figured this blend would be an easy win. Slightly crisp, certainly wet and sweet, the light wine rivals a white zinfandel in color as well as these characteristics. In flavour, something seems lost in translation as the two grape varieties conflict more than marry in taste. Hints of each but an undecidedly back and forth profile. Waffling may be a good change of pace for some imbibers, but after a glass I just wanted one or the other.

Riunite:
In 1950, nine wine producers from the agriculturally rich Emilia-Romagna region "united" to form the Cantine Cooperative Riunite.

In 1950, nine wine producers from the agriculturally rich Emilia-Romagna region "united" to form the Cantine Cooperative Riunite. The new association enabled the winemakers to purchase better equipment, share new technical ideas and technologies, and improve both the production and the quality of their wines. This has worked out very well for the winemakers and consumers. Today, over 50 years later, there are 1,200 dedicated growers who grow grapes for the production of Riunite-the world's leading wine exporter in the world! Vinification (the act of making grape juice into wine) takes place under the watchful eye of Master Oenologist Vanni Lottici and his staff of experts. In June 1993, Riunite was the first winery in Europe to be granted "Certified Quality" status. These standards guarantee consumers that their purchases have been rigorously controlled at every stage of production: from the moment the grapes arrive at the winery until the bottles are shipped.
