You know that friend who always invites you over for chef-quality meals? You know how you always feel sort of guilty that you end up bringing a bagged salad and a bottle of dressing? Venturini-Baldini Lambrusco Dell'Emilia ($14) will take care of that guilt. Give her a bottle of this heady red and she'll be so stoked she might overlook the fact that you didn't even spring for the mixed greens. Between us, though, iceberg is not where it's at.
