Lambrusco, a bubbly, slightly sweet red wine is served well-chilled, and so is a godsend in the summer, when simpler fare, especially grilled or cured meats, call for a similarly light-hearted wine. Lambrusco makes an exceptional, if unexpected, match with fiery hot-and-spicy dishes because its bubbly nature and slight sweetness make it work more like beer than wine to quench the flames.
Vinification: The grapes, harvested between September and October are removed from the stalks and are traditionally vinified on their skins at a controlled temperature. The second fermentation takes place using the Charmat method in pressure tanks with the base wine and fresh must and with the aid of selected yeasts.


Wine Spectator A bright and tangy Lambrusco, balanced and easy-drinking, with wild berry and cherry fruit, accented by notes of underbrush and smoke. Spiced finish.Wine Enthusiast Aromas of crushed blue flower, spicy blueberry, juicy blackberry and baking spice characterize this savory, inky colored sparkler. The vivacious, off-dry palate is balanced by fresh acidity that leaves a clean finish. It's thoroughly enjoyable.
