Lambrusco

Name of varietal: Lambrusco

Common synonyms: Salamino (refers to the bunch form)
 
Parentage of the grape: indigenous to Emilia-Romagna, Italy
 
History of the grape: There is evidence that the ancient Romans were drinking wines made from Lambrusco, a grape that was strewn about the hillsides like dandelions (its translation is “wild vines”). In Italy, for many centuries, the wine has been produced in various forms from dry to sweet, but usually some level of sparkling from frizzante to full on bubbles. It is made most often in the Charmat method, which means the secondary fermentation takes place in pressurized tanks, not in the bottle as in the champenoise method. It is sometimes blended with Ancellotta to add more intense color and body.

    A great, easy-to-drink, chilled wine. Like its Riunite cousin Lambrusco (Red), it's a casual wine that most people will enjoy, even if they don't enjoy wine. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    I agree with previous reviewers, it's a great 'starter' wine. Very sweet, and you'll have trouble drinking a lot of it and may get bored quickly. It tastes good though. A great casual wine for the non-snobby crowd. Read More

    Bright purple in the glass. Nose of blue and blackberries with tones of tea. ... bright fruit with an almost lambrusco-like zing. Some citrus tones on the finish. Not a long lasting wine.After some time open, it really got some more depth and a fair amount of complexity with some almost merlot-like qualities. Very nice. This one might ag... Read More

    I love this Wine! It would be great with Turkey on Thanksgiving! It pours so pretty with a pretty pink froth. It is pleasantly sweet not over the top sweet.
