Villa di Corlo Lambrusco di Sorbara Rosato Rolfshark NV
Emilia-Romagna is the home to the delicious red bubbly we all love with pizza, but Lambrusco isn’t the only fabulous frizzante coming from this region. Pignoletto is a lightly sparkling white wine - crisp, subtly herbal, satiating like a crunch piece of watermelon on a hot summer day. Enjoy with a BLT on a picnic blanket.

This stunner is loaded with intense fruit expressions, tremendous mineral complexity, 100% memorable and truly worthy of Grand Cru status. There is a reason why this estate is considered legendary.
