While the neighboring Valpolicella region gets all the glory, Bardolino has been quietly chugging away at value wines for decades. It was only a matter of time before gold star vinaioli (winegrowers) like Guerrieri Rizzardi began pushing the quality envelope and started making fantastic quality wines in this area. Bolla is bollocks; this will make you want to kiss your fingertips.

Serving Suggestion: Best friends with any charcuterie plate! Tagliatelle or pappardelle w/ “tastasal” a pork ragu. Gnocchi w/ tomato, onions, & Veronese cheese.

2016 Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso "Pojega" (Guerrieri-Rizzardi)

Guerrieri-Rizzard, Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso Classico "Pojega", Veneto, Italy, 2016

{organic} 50% Corvinone, 30% Corvina, 10% Rondinella, & 10% Merlot

CURRANT & BLACK CHERRY, PEPPERY & PIQUANT, TOASTED CHESTNUT

Famously utilizing the skins from the partially-dried grapes responsible for the Valpolicella region’s Amarones, the Veronese specialty known as Ripasso comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. This one from the micro-production maestros of Rizzardi is simultaneously lithe and lavish with peppery spice, firm fruit, and a year of aging in French and Savonian oak. An unusually high percentage of the coveted Corvinone grape is also of keen interest!

Serving Suggestion: Cranberry-glazed ham w/ clove & cinnamon. Tortellini w/ broad beans & pecorino.
