NEW YORK CITY — A crisp rosé and stone dry white aren't the only wine options to refresh you over the summer.

Certain red wines such as lambrusco are best served slightly or fully chilled. This might mean putting it in the fridge for 30 minutes before serving or, with a lambrusco, storing it there permanently.

Here are six red wines best served chilled:

Domaine Famille Rouet Chinon from Vines on Pine in Hudson Heights
Price: $16

This 2011 wine from the Loire Valley, France is best when sipped slightly chilled, according to Vines on Pine's assistant manager Alex Popovic.

"It is a very light red and when you have a chill on it it gets rid of the acidity," he said.

Cantina de Sorbara "Niccchia" Lambrusco NV from the Winery In Harlem
Price: $15.95

Lambrusco, a sparkling red, should always be served fully chilled. This one is dry and tastes like a darker rosé, according to Pierre Greene, the sales associate at the Winery.

Rossese "Vigneto Isasco" Punta Crena from Flatiron Wines in the Flatiron District
Price: $24.99

This 2014 vintage is a high altitude wine that is bright and fresh, according to general manager Alexis Elder. She suggested putting it in the freezer for ten minutes or the fridge for 30 minutes before serving.

Vigneto Saetti Lambrusco Salamino di Santa Croce from Keweens Wine in Kew Gardens
Price: $17.99

This wine is an organic lambrusco from a small northern Italian winemaker. The grapes are bottled young so the wine has a fresh taste with a big fragrance.

Domaine Emile Balland 'Les Beaux Jours' Rouge from Waterfront Wines in Brooklyn Heights
Price: $20.25

This wine is best served between 52 and 55 degrees (about half an hour in the fridge before serving) and is a good pairing with grilled chicken or fish, according to Josh Knepley from Waterfront Wines. He said the "the soft, lush dark fruit of Gamay with the vibrant cherry notes and lean acidity of pinot noir" are perfect with a slight chill.

Alfierei Grignolino from Corkscrew Wines in Clinton Hill
Price: $19

This is a sustainable and aromatic red from Piedmonte in Italy, which has a silky, but bright character. It is best served with a slight chill rather than a full chill.
