Many people pat me on the back for this (especially my dentist), but it makes me very sensitive to sweet wines. I like sparkling wine, but I always seem to tread lightly with Lambrusco. But at last I have found a Lambrsuco that's my speed. La Grasparossa is delightfully aromatic with notes of dark currants, balsamic vinegar, blackberries, and violets. The palate is balanced with a touch of sweetness and acid to match. Pair this wine with raspberry sorbet, mixed arugula salad, or Margherita pizza.
