Not what I call a typical Bardolino but still enjoyable
I have previously visited lake Garda and the Bardolino winemaking region and indulged in several Bardolino wines which I found all very light in colour and texture however this particular wine was a far darker and more inky colour typical to that of a montepulciano d'abruzzo. I thought the flavour was like a cross between a young claret and a fruity nero'davola (!) - it has loads of flavour, a balanced acidity and a gentle sweetness that makes it very easy to drink either on its own or as an accompaniment to food. Overall I am pleased with this wine and would totally agree with the label description of 'cherryish' fruit. I found it equally good at room temperature or chilled, it just depends what mood you are in.
