Tasting Notes: Cherry, Red Currant, Pepper, Earthy
Lambrusco is a brightly colored grape variety used to make sparkling red wines in Emilia-Romagna, northern Italy. More accurately, it is a collective term for a group of grape varieties (much like Muscat) – more than 60 Lambrusco varieties have been identified so far! This pleasantly off-dry sparkling red is noted for high acidity and berry flavors. It's fantastic with pizza, lasagna, and other richly sauced pasta dishes. Drink it lightly chilled with grilled meats too! BBQ anyone?
