Name of varietal: Lambrusco
Description 2 of 2
"However, more recently, excellent quality Lambruscos have been widely available, though it often takes some tasting trial and error to suss out the good ones."
Actually, it's quite easy to find the real bottles among the commercial/industrial Lambrusco versions without having to study the labels or to taste them.
Authentic Lambusco has a minimum of 11% alcohol: Lambrusco secco (dry to off-dry, depending on producer and year; enjoyed with food in Emilia) and Lambrusco amabile (sweet to very sweet; consumed with or instead of dessert).
Of course, 'real' doesn't automatically translate into 'very good'. The quality varies from producer to producer - just like with any other wine.
