Le Fraghe Bardolino, Corvina Blend
Veneto, Italy, 2019 (750 ml)
Matilde Poggi is a giant in Italy's wine world (she's the president of Italy's independent wine growers' association and owns her own certified organic estate). Her Bardolino is like the younger, fresher sister to Valpolicella; while this is a Corvina-based blend, it drinks more like Pinot Noir. Chillable and gluggable with a good mineral background.
