It is sometimes blended with Ancellotta to add more intense color and body. By the mid 1970s, much of the Lambrusco that was imported was young, sweet and cheap, and this unfortunately gave it a terrible reputation for decades.

    An outrageously good deal for a scrumptious lambrusco. Bright and fruity, and the price is so good you can't pass up a bottle. I get a case each summer. Read More

    Wonderful as an introductory or casual wine, this red tastes very similar to non-alcoholic sparkling grape juice. Its light alcohol content and rich fruity flavor makes it a must-have for your emergency stash. Read More

  • Gelsomina Lambrusco Mantovano 2007


    Tasty and refreshing. Bought a bottle at my local shop for $10.49 only to find they sold out of it when I went back for more. Definitely going to snatch up a few when they get more in stock. Perfect as the weather warms up. Read More

  • Riunite Lambrusco Emilia IGT NV


    An excellent wine for the beginning wine taster unsure that they would like wine at all. It is slightly carbonated with a berry flavor. A perfect wine that no one has to try hard to like, unless you've moved on to the more sophisticated. It's also cheap which is, for those of with a slim pocketbook, a good find. Read More
