Region: Emilia-Romagna, Italy Grape(s): 90% Lambrusco Salamino, 10% Ancellotta Winemaker: Alicia and Fabio Lini Drinks Best: Now
The reputation of Lambrusco has been dragged down for decades by the overly sweet versions that tend to make it to the US market, but those are a far cry from what the locals of Emilia-Romagna keep for themselves. Thankfully, we’re seeing a growing number of high-quality Lambruscos make it to our side of the Atlantic these days. This plump, juicy sparkling wine is the beverage of choice for the discerning palates that dine in the gustatory capital of Italy, Emilia-Romagna. It exhibits plump cherry and grapey fruit with earth, soft bubbles and a creamy, herbaceous finish. Serve chilled and drink up!
Pairings: Margherita pizza, prosciutto-wrapped melon, hard cheeses
