From the Reggiano area of Emilia-Romagna in central Italy, this fizzy red wine offers aromas of chocolate and cherry liqueur. The wine is almost dry, with a sweet spot at the middle, and has the acidity and firmness to pair with cheesy pasta.

This is a dry, fizzy red wine that’s made from a blend of indigenous Lambrusco grapes, including 55% Lambrusco Marani. Thanks to its bright acidity and lively fruit flavors, this pairs perfectly with fatty foods such as pasta in cream sauce or boiled meats.
