Centovini offers Lambrusco lovers a Spuntino Reggiano.
It’s official: beginning this week, Chef Patti Jackson’s Spuntino Reggiano — inspired by the newly arrived Lambrusco Labrusca Rosso 06 Lini — is being featured at Centovini (25 W. Houston between Mercer and Greene, 212-219-2113) www.centovininyc.com.
Spuntino Reggiano – (spoon-TEE-no reh-JAH-noh), Ital., a snack in the Reggio Emilia style; grilled mortadella wedges and torta di verdure, a savory pie filled with Swiss chard and Parmigiano-Reggiano, served with a glass of Lambrusco Labrusca Rosso Lini.
“A classic Reggiano ‘snack'”–Peter Hellman, New York Sun
Alicia Lini is a fourth-generation winemaker whose family has been making Lambrusco since 1910. The Labrusca Rosso is her family’s “traditional” Lambrusco and is already this summer’s hit:
“Not your grandmother’s Lambrusco.” —Ray Isle, “Tasting Room,” Food & Wine
“Now comes a Lambrusco that is a step up.” —Peter Hellman, New York Sun
“Lambrusco has gone upscale.” —Mary Ewing-Mulligan, New York Daily News
“Rare Lini Lambruscos have landed.”—Alexandra Vallis, “Grub Street,” New York Magazine
You’ll only find the Spuntino Reggiano at Centovini, and it won’t be around long, so come in and try this perfect summertime pairing today.
