Fiorini Lambrusco Grasparossa Terre Al Sole 2012

Member Review by amphibia:

I had this at a lovely place called Anchovies & Olives on Saturday- I have bad associations with anything called Lambrusco, and was surprised to see it on the menu of a nicer restaurant with an excellent wine list, so I went for it, and WOW! I've never had a red wine like this, and it was so pleasant- very amicable, but still complex with a really beautiful profile- lots of fruit, no flat spots and a clean, dry finish. It's hard to describe, because its like someone took the best of a strawberry, mid-dry rose, a simple prosecco and a fruity zinfandel and smashed them together, only ending up with the compatible & friendly qualities of each. I loved it, and now I need to find more, but it doesn't exist around here except at A&E- perhaps I'll have to haunt their happy hour for a bit :)
