WineDiva's Review

Juicy, engaging, energetic.
Made from the trinity of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara, this brilliant ruby Bardolino was constructed in stainless on the Bonomo family estate just east of Lake Garda in the Veneto, in the municipality of Sommacampagna. While Monte del Fra's Lena di Mezzo Amarone (also available in BCLS) is a knock-out, this charming red is bouncy and quaffable.
The 2018 shows lifted sweet cherry, raspberry and pomegranate aromas layered with caramelized sugar, fine spice and tealeaf. 
Juicy and expressive (but not lacking structure) on the palate it features small red berry, cedar and sour cherry flavours; granular tannins add chewiness. The finish is lively. 

Pop this baby in the fridge for a few minutes before serving, it'll reward you.


Pairs great with Gone Crackers Undressed.
 
 
Recommended Pairings
Cheese - Semi Hard / Medium , Seafood/Fish, Girl's Night, White Meat Chicken/Pork, Italian Food, Tomatoes and Tomato Sauces, GONE CRACKERS, Appetizers
