Variety: Corvina and Rondinella
As a young girl, Matilde Poggi, grew up around winemaking and hearing her parents talk about it. During October, she would go straight from school to the vineyards to help with the harvest. Her first harvest was in 1984, prior to that, the grapes were sold to another winery. Matilde is passionate about the surrounding terroir of valleys, rivers, winds from the north, and the mountainous areas that makes her wines uniquely their own. Her 3 daughters now help her run the winery. They have been certified organic since 2009.
The Bardolino growing area is between the base of Lake Gardo and Valpolicella, not far from Verona in Northeast Italy. Matile Poggi’s Bardolino contains more Corvina than is normal, with only 20% of the wine being Rondinella. The estate is organic, and the two varieties are fermented separately and then blended, using no oak for aging, as the wine would be overwhelmed by wood. This is an extremely versatile wine, with a body not unlike Pinot Noir.
