Of all the Lambrusco types of wine, this is the most exported one, not least due to the fact that the grapes are grown throughout 35 municipalities. The result is a rather huge production.

With their very light structure, most types belong to the light cavalry. Some producers, however, have been trying to produce darker, more full-bodied wines.

The grapes used for Reggiano Lambrusco Rosso DOC include Lambrusco Marani and/or Lambrusco Salamino, Lambrusco Montericco, Lambrusco Maestri, Lambrusci Viadanese, Lambrusco di Sorbara and Ancelletta (85-100%), Malbo Gentile and/or Lambrusco a Foglia Frastagliata (0-15%).

Nevertheless, Reggiano Lambrusco Rosso DOC is a fresh wine, with a taste ranging from dry to semisweet and sweet, and a more or less pink color ranging from ruby red to intense red.

This wine is also produced as a rosé called Reggiano Lambrusco Rosato DOC, produced both as still and as Frizzante.

The dry type is best enjoyed with food, while the sweet is best served with dessert.
