Lambrusco Marani

The red grape variety originates from Italy and is one of the numerous Lambrusco varieties. The parentage is unknown. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2005, it is possibly closely related to the Fogarina variety. The medium to late ripening, high-yielding vine is sensitive to frost. It produces deep-coloured, tannin-rich red wines with a fruity aroma. These are used for the production of still and sparkling wines. The variety is grown in the Emilia-Romagna region, mainly in the province of Reggio Emilia, but also in the provinces of Bologna and Parma, as well as in Lombardy in the province of Mantova. It is permitted in wines of the DOC areas Colli di Scandiano e di Canossa, Reggiano and Lambrusco Mantovano. In 2016, 1,074 hectares of vines were declared in Italy (Kym Anderson).

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
