Additional Information on Riunite Riunite Lambrusco

Winery: Riunite

Varietal: Lambrusco

The Lambrusco grape varietal is widely enjoyed by wine makers and drinkers alike around the world, and it is one varietal which has an impressive and very long history. Archaeological evidence suggests it was being grown and cultivated long before the Romans, and has been an important grape for the identity and culture of the people who live in its indigenous Emilia region ever since. The grapes themselves are most commonly used for the famous sparkling wine which bears its name, and Lambrusco is renowned for holding slightly sweet, strawberry flavors which make it a favorite for many due to its light body, elegance and easy drinkability. It is also used to make dry wines, which have a slightly bitter after taste, and is a grape with many variants as many as sixty, making it an interesting and unique varietal with many sought after attributes.

Country: Italy

There are few countries in the world with a viticultural history as long or as illustrious as that claimed by Italy. Grapes were first being grown and cultivated on Italian soil several thousand years ago by the Greeks and the Pheonicians, who named Italy 'Oenotria' the land of wines so impressed were they with the climate and the suitability of the soil for wine production. Of course, it was the rise of the Roman Empire which had the most lasting influence on wine production in Italy, and their influence can still be felt today, as much of the riches of the empire came about through their enthusiasm for producing wines and exporting it to neighbouring countries. Since those times, a vast amount of Italian land has remained primarily for vine cultivation, and thousands of wineries can be found throughout the entire length and breadth of this beautiful country, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine and benefiting from the excellent fertile soils found there. Italy remains very much a 'land of wines', and one could not imagine this country, its landscape and culture, without it.
