Wine of the Week for March 6, 2006

Cantina de Negrar Bardolino Classico 2004 - $ 9.85
Style: R1
Italy: Veneto

We don't see enough Bardolino on store shelves, an under-rated wine that always delivers a great price: performance ratio. This Classico edition shows a rich nose of blackberries and bing cherries with hints of tobacco, cedar and dark chocolate. Quite fruity on the palate, somewhat forward, with a fresh acidity, light tannins and cranberry and blackcurrant flavours. Medium bodied and with very good length, it would be an ideal mate for antipasti, chili or tomato sauces. (LCBO 039701)
