Lambrusco Days 2020. 7 Days Of ‘Serious’ Fun.
Friday, June 19th – Thursday, June 25th, 2020

cache_24548175Lambrusco got a bad rap in the ’70s and ’80s when an industrial US version (4%-9.5% alc., 30-90g/l sugar) of real Lambrusco (red, frizzante, secco= sugar: max 15g/l, min. 11% alc.) became the best-selling imported wine in the USA.

Times have changed and there’s been a resurgence of authentic Lambrusco made in the traditional secco frizzante style. Grown around Parma, Modena, Reggio, Bologna, Cremona, and Mantova, Lambrusco is the ultimate pairing for a platter of Prosciutto di Parma, and chunks of Parmigiano-Reggiano drizzled with balsamic vinegar in a stunning illustration of the idea that “if it grows together, it goes together!”

The Lambrusco Secco revival is being led by producers who take care to produce wines that are varietally true and imbued with a distinct sense of terroir. Many of these committed producers have rescued indigenous Lambrusco varieties from near extinction and come from families that have produced exclusively Lambrusco Secco locally for generations.

With its low alcohol content (min. 10.5% alc.), slight fizz (frizzante), bright fruit, and a hint of bitterness, true Lambrusco (Secco) has become a darling among sommeliers looking for something unique, crowd-pleasing, and food-friendly.

Even though most people consider June 21 as the date of the June Solstice, it can happen anytime between June 20 and June 22, depending on which time zone you’re in. June 22 Solstices are rare – the last June 22 Solstice in UTC time took place in 1975 and there won’t be another one until 2203.
