Drink of the Week: Venturini Baldini Marchese Manodori Lambrusco

Lingering in the wake of Thanksgiving overindulgence but not yet completely ready to dive headfirst into traditional holiday treats like Tom & Jerries and booze-fueled punches, I find that mid-December is always a somewhat odd time for figuring out what to drink. This week I’ve decided to not overthink the dilemma, instead reaching for some solid standbys in the wine department. Lately, I’ve been enjoying an easygoing Lambrusco from Emilia-Romagna. The Venturini Baldini company has been making organic sparkling wines since 1976, and that skilled craftsmanship shows in the Marchese Manodori, which features a blend of four grape varieties. With a fruity personality (think cherries and raspberries), subtle hints of clove and nutmeg, and a touch of dryness on the finish, it’s an affordable and delightful any-occasion option, but considering how well the style fits into celebratory settings thanks to its frizzante qualities, it’s also a great way to bring a pop of holiday cheer to the dinner table. $16.24, saratogawine.com
