This refreshing sparkling red wine sings a story of ripe strawberry, raspberry, dark plum and violet notes and wears a handsome purple hue. Medium-dry and full-bodied on the palate with a smooth, velvety texture; classically paired with Italy’s famous Cheese and Prosciutto dishes, it is perfect as an aperitif and shared with good company.
The flat plains of Emilia are home to Italy's famous, slightly sparking red, Lambrusco. While historically popular in large volumes, Lambrusco suffered a bit of scorn as an overly simple and sweet, frothy wine. Today there is an artisanl pull to produce small-batch, quality-focused dry and sweet versions within its four distinct Lambrusco subregions.
Made in a handful of wine regions across the globe, red sparkling wine ranges from delicately sweet to bone dry. While styles vary by region, red sparkling wine production methods are often the decision of the winemaker. For serving, cool red sparkling wine down to about 40F to 50F.
