I was working again at Slow Wine today and had the occasion to taste the Charetto from Le Fraghe. A beautiful wine, I was not disappointed. It had everything I found the first time I tried it – beauty, freshness and balance. I am a devoted Charietto fan after having tried numerous ones today during the tasting. I was serving Lugana all day and sticking with other Lake Garda wines such as Chiaretto from Bardolino.
This week’s Women in Wine Fridays is about Matilde Poggi from Le Fraghe. I met Matilde at the Slow Wine tasting back in February. I was really impressed with her wines and wanted to find out more about her. These are her answers to some questions that I emailed her about her winery and her winemaking. I found her wines all very clean and intriguing. People, myself included, often don’t take Bardolino seriously enough. Made from Corvina and Rondinella, this wine proved very interesting and food friendly. Meeting Matilde made me want to learn more and I think this Vinitaly I will take advantage of that opportunity.
