When we do our wine tours in Veneto (with amarone, Valpolicella etc) we often make a small detour to Bardolino, the wine region on the eastern shore of the Garda Lake in the Vento region in north-eastern Italy.
When we come here we often make a stop at a place run by a not very big but very determined lady who’s name is Matilde Poggi. She owns and runs the Le Fraghe winery. Matilde sometimes pulls out some surprises for us and lately she has done a very interesting tasting to compare a wine in a bottle closed with natural cork and in one closed with screw cap. We taste the wine blind of course.
Is there a difference?
Beforehand one can easily be convinced that one is better than the other, but what happens if you are served to wines blind, identical wines from the same tank but one sealed with Screwcap and the other with natural cork? Interesting questions!
