The winery is named after the family of the same name, who have lived in Lake Garda in Italy’s Veneto for centuries. Their name can be found on the Medlieval tower in Verona’s Piazza delle Erbe. This is one of Italy’s most traditional regions, and this winery is known for creating modern takes on those classic wines. Their wines are made with a focus on innovation, while staying true to their heritage and cultural past.

So I am thinking to myself, somebody must surely like this wine, right? I don't. Oddly, I think Lamberti's Pinot Nero is one of the best in Europe for the price, but I spent the same 4.99 euros for this bottle of Bardolino Classico, and I am tempted to pour it down the sink. This is a typical Bardolino consisting of a very light bodied red with a long finish, and a somewhat bitter fruity taste. Truthfully, this is worse than the cheapest of French table wines. I think I will mix it with some fruit, juice and brandy and make a sangria out of the rest of this bottle. Drink at your own risk. OK, it didn't make a very good sangria, but I chilled it way down and drank it like a white or rose, and it was ok. Just be warned you are getting a very light red wine without the full range of flavors one would expect from an Italian red.
