Lambrusco Love: 5 Writers Who Champion A Supremely Food-Friendly Wine

Is there a more pizza-loving wine than Lambrusco? It's fresh, fun, grape-y and, not as sweet as you think. It can be bone-dry or have a kiss of sweetness. Check out the two bottles of Lambrusco we're offering from Opera '02 di Ca' Montanari. Both under $15!

Whether dry (Secco) or with a touch of sweetness (Amabile), you'll be hard-pressed to find a better wine for whatever you tops your pizza. Lambrusco is also phenomenal with cured meats.

And if you must have red wine during summer's long, hot days, why not have something chilled and fizzy?

Here are 5 proponents that show the Lambrusco love.
