Lini Lambruscos Featured in New York Magazine‘s “Grub Street’

Alicia Lini’s Lambruscos are the must-drink wines this summer. But don’t just take it from us — New York Magazine’s Alexandra Vallis hails their arrival.

We’ve just put the Lini Lambruscos out on the shelves and on, so be the first to get your hands on the hot drink of the summer. And come out and celebrate their arrival at the Sparkling Summer Blast-Off II, Thurs., June 21 garden party at I Trulli, where we’ll be pouring all four of these Lambruscos and serving up delicious antipasti to go with them.

 “We’re taking the loss of the spaghetti-slurping Soprano family hard, but comfort, in the form of an ultrarare specimen of Northern Italian wine, is at hand. Lambrusco, a sparkling wine from a red grape of the same name, comes from Emilia-Romagna, where its refreshing effervescence cuts the richness of hearty regional dishes. Until recently, a methode champenoise variety — fermented in the bottle, that is, like Champagne — was not known to have been poured in New York, let alone stocked on shelves.”

Vino, Italian Wine and Spirits reps Jeremy Parzen and Jim Hutchinson scoured wine country for new styles of the old-world grape, settling on the family-owned label Lini, and brought back Lambrusco Metodo Classico ‘Corrigia Brut’ (the Italian term for champenoise). It’s now on offer at the shop as well as at nearby I Trulli. (Nicola Marzovilla owns both, as well as Centovini.) They’re also carrying Lambrusco Bianco ‘Labrusca,’ a white vintage you won’t find outside of Italy, and Lambrusco Rose ‘Corrigia Cerasa,’ which the producer’s young spokeswoman, Alicia Lini, prefers, telling us she finds it molto chic. New Jersey, we feel your Italian influence waning already.–Alexandra Vallis”

The June 20 garden party sold out fast, so don’t miss out on your chance to kick back in one of Michelin Guide’s top-rated New York City gardens with a glass of Lambrusco in hand.
