2018 Benazzoli Bardolino Dafne Red - Veneto, Italy
Bardolino is typically a fresher, lighter and tastier version of Valpolicella, its more famous neighbor to the east. Both wines are made with the same varietals - Corvina, Rondinello and Molinara - and tend to be light-to-medium bodied with low to moderate tannins. But whereas Valpolicella is inland, Bardolino benefits from being situated directly on the eastern shore of Lake Garda. Bennazoli’s Dafne is so beautiful with absolutely delicious flavors and enticing aromas of fresh, wild strawberries. It sees no oak to enhance the purity of the fruit. Enjoy slightly chilled with pasta, poultry, fish or cheese.
