Lambrusco, a lightly sparkling, slightly sweet red wine is served well-chilled, and so is a godsend in the summer, when simpler fare, especially grilled or cured meats, call for a similarly light-hearted wine. Lambrusco makes an exceptional, if unexpected, match with fiery hot-and-spicy dishes because its bubbly nature and slight sweetness make it work more like beer than wine to quench the flames.
Technical notes
The grapes, harvested between September and Octoberare removed from the stalks and are traditionally vinified on their skins at a controlled temperature. The second fermentation takes place using the Charmat method in pressure tanks with the base wine and fresh must and with the aid of selected yeasts.
