Gutturnio Frizzante "Magia", Cordani 2019 (Emilia Romagna, Italy)
The Magia family has been making traditional, delicious fizzy wines naturally in the hills of Piacenza for generations. Gutturnio always plays second fiddle to Lambrusco when it comes to sparkling reds mostly because of smaller output and less producers, but it is magical stuff. 60% Barbera and 40% Bonarda (aka Croatina) made in the ancestral method (Pet-Nat). Lighter than Lambrusco with candied red fruit and silky tannins with prickly light bubbles and a lipsmacking finish. Barbecue wine of the gods.
