Bolla-Bardolino.jpg

Name: Bolla Bardolino Magnum

Variety: 60% Corvina, 30% Rondinella, 10% Molinara

Region: Bardolino

Country: Italy

Year: 2013

Price: $18

Winery Notes: A blend of 60% Corvina, 30% Rondinella, 10% Molinara this bright ruby red wine has hints of black cherry on the nose.  It is soft and fruit-forward, with black-fruit flavors followed by a bright and fresh finish. Serve it as the Italians do – young and lightly chilled. Pairs perfectly with fleshy fish, beef, lamb, red-sauced pastas and pizza.

My Notes: This wine had a soft but unpleasant nose. I felt like it smelled like asparagus but also feet. The wine itself had strong tannins, spice, and was a bit earthy.

I did not have this with food.
