Definitions for "LAMBRUSCO"
A red grape variety grown all over Italy, used to make slightly sweet, effervescent wines. It's difficult to obtain quality lambrusco in Australia.
Well-known Italian red wine, almost always slightly sparkling.
(lam-broos'-co) A lightly sparkling wine, made from the grape of the same name. It is from the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. Produced both in a dry or slightly sweet style, it is best know in the US as the brand Riunite (which is one of the sweetest examples made). In Italy, it is easier to find the drier styles, and they are a great match for the rich foods of the region. Lambrusco is made just west of Bologna, which is considered to be the capital of Italian gastronomy.
