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).

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
