In some circles, Podere Il Saliceto’s winemaker, GianPaolo Isabella is better known for being the three-time Italian champion of Muay Thai. We get it: roundhouse kicks to the solar plexus have a way of expunging subtle elixirs from one's mind! But GP is a gentle giant, and in his home of Modena he makes some of the loveliest Lambruscos we know. The Sorbara clone that makes up his Falistra is the Lambrusco clone best known for its bouncy acidity, and you'll see what we mean. A gorgeous color of pink, this goes with everything and focuses the mind (albeit considerably less than a kick to the face!). So good, so invigorating, so full of verve.
