Lambrusco is both the name of the grape varietal and name of wine originating from Emilia-Romagna, which is located in the central part of Italy lying south of the Veneto and north of Tuscany. Lambrusco is used to make sparkling red wines and there have been more than 60 Lambrusco varieties identified to date.
Lambrusco is usually produced in a semi-sparkling style, otherwise known as frizzante and can be dry (secco) or barely sweet (semisecco). It can be described as light, flavourful and zesty.
