Stuck in my head – Bardolino

Ever get a tune stuck in your head?  “Stayin’ Alive” by the BeeGees was in my head all afternoon after I visited to a pawn shop downtown.  There really should be a warning on the door of stores that play music like that.  Sticky music.

Everytime I think of the word Bardolino I sing it like the showtune “Oklahoma”.  “Baaar —dolino where the wind comes sweeping o’er the plain – Bardolino”.  See there it is.  It will not come out of my head.

I discovered and wrote about the wine Bardolino this past summer in Genova (see my post Italy ~ Let’s get ready to argue).  Bardolino is a light / medium bodied wine that is easy to drink but fights back just enough for me to like it.  I promised to review a couple from the LCBO. 

FOLONARI BARDOLINO LCBO 12344 |  Price: $ 11.95 

Folonari is easy drinking and light but doesn’t fight back with sour cherries like I wanted it too.  A short finish.  Simple but good.

NEGRAR BARDOLINO LCBO 39701 | PRODUCT DISCONTINUED??*??Price: $ 9.95 –  I investigated this further.  The LCBO website says Product Discontinued but the Speedvale store has 16 bottles so race to get them because this one is really good! It tastes like the Bardolino I drank in Italy.
