CinqueCampi Lambrusco Rosso (shown below!)

We're so excited for you to try this frizzante Lambrusco! Perfect for a Valentine's evening spent solo OR with your main squeeze. This fizzy Italian delight is like a party in a bottle, and it's about time you joined the fun! Cinque Campi is a charming little winery run by Vanni Nizzoli - it has been a family-run estate for over 200 years and derives its name from a historic vineyard. They have been practicing completely organic viticulture and were officially certified in 2003. The 6.8-hectare estate, with clay, sand, silt, and chalk subsoil, produces this labor-intensive Lambrusco, akin to Champagne in method. Their wines, from 30+ year old vines, offer lush red fruit, spice, gentle tannins, and a hint of earthiness, embodying a deep connection to their land and history. Pair this Lambrusco with rich foods like charcuterie and cheese - the effervescence and acidity cut through the fat, creating a delightful contrast! Enjoy with pizza, pasta with tomato-based or creamy sauces, or BBQ. Serve chilled and enjoy within 3 days from opening!

Lambrusco is primarily produced in the Emilia-Romagna and Lombardy regions of Italy. It has a long history, with roots going back to the Etruscans and Romans! It's made from not just one grape but a family of old grape varieties. There are several varieties of Lambrusco grapes, including Lambrusco Grasparossa, Lambrusco Maestri, and Lambrusco Salamino, each contributing different characteristics to the wine. Lambrusco can range from dry (secco) to sweet (dolce), with semi-sweet (semisecco) and slightly sweet (amabile) options in between. The wine's versatility makes it suitable for a wide range of palates and occasions. We love Lambrusco all year round - it's one of our most popular wines at Flask & Field because it's super celebratory, versatile, easy to share and easy to pair! Add this sparkler to the rotation.
