I love a chilled bottle of Lambrusco with a Summer BBQ, nothing better! Chateau legopener one of my friends calls it 😆
But I do find myself having to justify drinking cheap plonk to the wine snobs, so do it less and less these days 🙁
Don’t Tescos sell their ownbrand – they used to?Posted 4 years agojambalayaSubscriber
Mateus Rose is an excellent fun summer wine – slightly sparkling – about a £5er a bottle
It is very true that context makes a big difference but also true that frequently some very good quality wines at good prices are only available locally, the local demand is sufficient to buy up all the supply so it doesn’t get shipped. The more expensive but not necessarily better wine gets sold on abroad.Posted 4 years agojulianwilsonMember
I stayed in Soave (as in the town that makes the wine) for a bit when I was 19: they told me that the lambrusco factory there they made lambrusco with the leftover grape skins when they had finished making the various other grades wine from repeated pressings. So a bit like the ‘mechanically recovered chicken nugget’ of wines, really.Posted 4 years agoransosSubscriber
Had some really nice red sparkling Lambrusco while in Italy and it was ace. Nicely chilled sat by Lake Gada and wasn’t too sweet.
I had that once – it bears little relation to the nasty supermarket plonk of the same name.
It goes very well with a strawberry dessert.Posted 4 years ago
