One first notices the beautiful dark salmon rosé color of this 50% Lambrusco Salamino, 50% Lambrusco di Sorbara. The nose has elements of tart cherry, cranberry, and a marzipan and flor like nuance. The palate is dry with a tart acidity and flavors of cherry, strawberry and a slight rhubarb / strawberry pie note. The mousse is short-lived as is the finish. This remains a very fun and interesting sparkling wine that would pair with preserved meat type charcuterie, poultry with red berry sauces or savory pastry styled desserts.
