There is evidence of this grape being cultivated around Reggio Emilia since the 19th century. Today it still is found there, as well as in the areas around Parma and Mantova. Lambrusco Marani is used in blends with others in the family, and its high acidity and light tannins make it suitable for sparkling wines, including whites. It brings delicate perfumes of marascene cherry, blackcurrant and floral notes of violet.
