Nivola Lambrusco Grasparossa di Castelvetro NV, 10.5%, Italy

(£11.99 on mix 6 until 22nd April, then £9.99 until 29th April 2019, Majestic)

Lambrusco is having a moment. This brilliant wine shows why.

It’s hard to know what to do with sparkling red. But the Italians are resourceful, and have a use for everything. Usually involving food. And so it is here.

This joyful, uplifting wine is packed full of dark cherry favour and the most delicate fizz. It’s relatively low in alcohol and just sings in the glass. Ideal for a wintery celebration – or a match for antipasta or tomato-based pasta dishes.
