Lambrusco

Name of varietal: Lambrusco

Common synonyms: Salamino (refers to the bunch form)

  • Riunite White Lambru

    Snoothrank:

    i am a HUGE fan of the lambrusco by riunite, and this one was also wonderful, but it is a little less sweet than the red lambrusco. i prefer sweet wines, but if you want something closer to a white zin, this one might do the trick. Read More
