Vino Rosato Frizzante “Sollazzo”
Sollazzo, meaning “fun under the sun,’” is made with Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara, and a little Sangiovese from a west-facing site planted in pergola. This is a fairly fertile plot, less calcareous than the vineyards that make the Bardolino Classico wines. The vines range from 5-55 years old.
The grapes are co-harvested. Fermented and aged in stainless steel; bottled on May 10th, 2018 at which point a secondary fermentation was triggered using unfermented must from the same harvest. It was released undisgorged. No added sulfur. 3,260 bottles made.
Bardolino is proposing a new typology, Bardolino Chiaretto Rifermentato in Bottiglia, so in the future this wine may be able to take an appellation name.
