“Life is a risk.” — Diane Von Furstenberg

Take a risk and try a lambrusco. Italian. Red. Effervescent. The sugar content of lambrusco’s range from dry to sweet. The Donelli Lambrusco Grasparossa di Castelvetro Amabile is in the semi-sweet cat

egory, a perfect wine for those love sweet wines, and a sparkling red is unusual enough for a conversation starter. And if the tough guys in the crowd are unswayed? Let ‘em know the Donelli.

Lambrusco is the official wine of the Ferrari race team. If it’s good enough for Formula 1 drivers, it’ll be a perfect reward for braving the after-school pick-up lines. The color is a clear garnet, with flavors of strawberries and raspberries predominating, with hints of spice.

The details: 9% alcohol. Varietal: lambrusco grasparossa 90%, malbo gentile 10%. Residual sugar: 35 grams/liter. The actual retail ranges from about $14-23 USD. Imported in the US by Opici Wines. This was a media sample generously provided by Opici.

The music match is “Fast Cars” by U2 from the album Medium Rare & Remastered. Even if you don’t have a fast car, you can certainly have lambrusco. C’mon, take a risk. You’ll be glad you did!
