As recommended by: Joe Fattorini

The Greatest Sparkling Red Wine in the World. Well that’s pretty definitive. This Lambrusco is a masterclass, adding rosehip complexity to the strawberry fruit, made with great length and finesse. It has a vibrant flavour that matches the tortellini of the middle of Italy, as well as seafood and hams and salamis. You don’t often find the ‘greatest in the world’ at this sort of price. It’s a crime not to try it.
