Lambrusco maestri

There are more than a dozen different varieties called Lambrusco something. They seem to have derived from wild vines in the Piedmont Emilia-Romagna Regions of N Italy.  

The Lambrusco style of wine in the 1970s and 80s - cheap, often sweet and thin - did much to damage the image of the word.  

But this variety can make impressive wines - a huge reward for those who can be persuaded to try them.

The few Australian producers listed below have broken the mould of the old stereotypes for this variety and make most of the wine.
