Lambrusco: The Pride of Emilia-Romagna
When you hear Italy, you think food. When you here Emilia-Romagna, you thing really good food. That’s because it is known as Italy’s food capital (and for good reason, think Bolognaise and Parmigiano Reggiano). Lambrusco is THE wine to pair with some of the most quintessential Italian dishes. Known in America as sickly sweet sparkling red, it is much more than that. Though it is sparkling, racy dry versions exist, as well as some delectable rosés. Join Todd Chatterton at The Fearrington House for this class!
