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. Half the vines are planted in 1966 and half in 2014. The grapes are co-harvested. Fermented in and aged in stainless steel; bottled on May 15, 2019, at which point a secondary fermentation was triggered using unfermented must from the same harvest. It is released undisgorged (“col fondo”) and unsulfured. 3087 bottles produced. 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.
