A specialty of central Italy that became very successful in the U.S. market in the 1970s but has since dropped off in popularity. There are 60 known clones of this grape, though most grow near the provinces of Reggio-Emilia, Parma and Modena. The Lambrusco is distinct for its fizzy red foam and perfumed aromas. Lighter in body, Lambrusco can be a touch sweet and makes for a very refreshing summertime red. Look for lots of light red fruits, and drink it young. Also grown to a lesser extent in Argentina.
