Oliver McCrum Wines has been importing small production Italian wine and distributing to fine retail and restaurant establishes throughout California since 1994. Over time, our portfolio of producers has steadily grown to over 45 producers from 15 different regions of Italy. We look for typical Italian wines with clarity and freshness, usually made from indigenous Italian grape varieties using clean, transparent winemaking techniques and no obvious use of oak.

Summer Fun: Lambrusco di Sorbara

Michele Boscia

I went to lunch with Mauro Buffagni, the owner of our Lambrusco producer Barbolini, and we started with 'Gnocco Fritto' with very good Prosciutto di Parma. Gnocchi Fritti are addictive puffs of fried dough; when eaten warm with the ham and washed down with Mauro's Lambrusco di Sorbara they were perfect, one of the best things I ate on my trip. Lambrusco di Sorbara is lighter than the Castelvetro Lambrusco we've always imported from Barbolini, more fragrant, a delicious contrast. As always with sparkling wines made by this method, we import smaller amounts frequently so as to ensure freshness.
