Lambrusco Modena Rosso Igt. Chiarli-1860

Member Review by GrantC:

I'm always in the quest for reasonably balanced, quaffable, sub-$10 wines, and this sweet/tangy, surprisingly minerally Lambrusco does the trick nicely. I was fortunate enough to live in Emilia-Romagna for a while, where this stuff comes from, and where you can get house bottles at restaurants for the equivalent of 50 cents. Lambrusco is not something for the connoisuer, it's not subtle enough for that. Rather, it's for the true, well-rounded appreciator of wine, who can make time to indulge the sheer, unalloyed pleasure of the act of drinking. Keep it chilled, so it's crisp and refreshing, and you've got a nice aperitivo or after-dinner wine. Best with fried food or junk food, as the crisp acids and bubbles act nicely to cut the grease. An all-round fun wine.
