Lambrusco is really a group of ancient Italian grape types. Most wines are made up of numerous different kinds, each with its own characteristic flavour profile. It's uncertain when these kinds first appeared, although Cato may have described them in De Agri Cultura, humanity's first documented agricultural treatise, published in 160 BC. As a result, when you drink Lambrusco, you're consuming original juice (several millennia older than Cabernet).
The greatest Lambruscos these days are dry (secco) and barely sweet (semisecco), and they're virtually always prepared in a semi-sparkling, frizzante form. There are around ten distinct types (8 closely related varieties, to be exact).
