Azienda Agricola Monte Del Fra 2008 Bardolino (Italy)
The Campbell's Soup kid couldn't have put it any better when he said, "mmm mmm good", because this is exactly what this wine is. Tonight, I found myself chez mere et pere for dinner, and mom pulled out this bottle of Bardolino - a quick look up shows the blend of grapes is very similar to Valpolicella with the Corvina, Molinara and Rondinella as the base. This is one smooth wine, lots of raspberry and plum notes with a real pleasant juiciness in the mouth - absolutely delicious. And those who say not to pair red with fish, think again, it wasn't a bad match at all to the Korean Salmon my father whipped up.
