Look! The survey is already working! This here post is a direct result of some of the requests I received. People want to see more of what I’m tasting on a daily basis and what my favorites are. Thus- Top of the Popped. I’ll post whatever excites me throughout the week. You dig it?
Yesterday at the shop, we tried this lovely little Lambrusco. It’s 100% sorbara, which I had never had before. It’s a clone of lambrusco, of which there are several- most notably grasparossa and salamino. Some Lambruschi also have a bit of ancellotta blended in. So, this wine- Cleto Chiarli “Premium”. The color was the first thing that excited me. Such a beautiful shade of ruby! And it tasted like a bushel of strawberries. But really clean, tart ones. That maybe rolled around on some rocks.
A little Italy in the glass and a whole lot of Hollywood all around it. Ah, such is life.
We will probably be bringing this in at some point in the near future, so keep an eye out. And do you know what you should eat with this wine when you do get your hands on it? This focaccia. Do it. I dare you.
PS- Thank you so much for all of your feedback. It is actually REALLY helpful. And if you haven’t filled out the survey yet, hurry up and get hip to this question answer party! Gracias.
