Corvina, Molinara, Rondinella
Bardolino, Monte del Fra
Monte del Fra is a great family winery based just south of Lake Garda in the Veneto region, north-east Italy.
Run by the Bonomo family since 1958 and now in the hands of brothers Eligio and Claudio, it is one of the most progressive and quality-minded producers in the area.
The Bardolino zone lies to the east of Lake Garda and these once-popular wines have been overshadowed by bigger and more ‘impressive’ wines of neighbouring Valpolicella. However, this wine shows just how good they can be when care is taken in the vineyards and in the winery – Monte del Fra certainly do that.
An unoaked blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara, this is a delightfully light, juicy and vibrant wine with enormous gluggability! Bags of fresh cherry and strawberry flavours and very light tannins combine to make a wine that is so easy to drink. On hot days it’s really good served chilled, straight from the fridge – just watch out you don’t drink it too quickly!
Perfect for outdoor drinking, picnics, lunches of cheese and salami, anti-pasti, a mid-week bowl of pasta with tomato sauce, good pizzas…you get the idea.

Simply one of the best Argentine Chardonnays we’ve ever tasted, this stunning, under-stated wine is verging on ethereal. The nose is fresh and delicate with notes of apple blossom, peach and mandarin and just the faintest suggestion of oak. The palate is pristine and precise, tidy and stylish. The amazing fruit quality at Juanfa’s disposal, the complete lack of malolactic fermentation and the fact that only 15% of the wine is aged in French barrels for 12 months, makes for a wine that is simultaneously lean and luscious.A great roast chicken wine. Or Turkey. Or any number of fish dishes. Creamy sauces. Pork Chops. All would be great matches.
