My Italian blood just had to pair this pizza with Italian wine and I didn’t even have to phone it in. An Italian wine on a French island seemed rebellious but I found this rebel at Super Fare Nui! The pirate in me dug deep into the treasure chest to find a 2013 diamond in the rough for 25 Euros!

The wine house Azienda Agricola Guerrieri-Rizzardi is located by the town of Bardolino Classico. The winery is today owned by the Rizzardi family, and the old house in Bardolino has served as a vineyard since 1450! 200 years later, since 1998, Giuseppe and Agostino Rizzardi have been in charge of running the winery. This eight-acre single plot named Tacchetto is estate owned.

Complex on the nose, primal with sour red cherry fruit, currants savory salumi. On the palate rustic and voluptuous, dry, live acid, grippy tannins with dried sweet oregano, violets, cured black olives, and a long full body finish.

The classic indigenous grapes that make up a perfectly orchestrated blend are 80% Corvina, 10% Rondinella and one French stowaway,10% Merlot. It has a  10-15 days maceration and only made on stainless steel tanks, in which the wine also matures 6 months. Only 11,300 bottles of the wine have been made in this 2013 vintage. Buona Fortuna finding it, you’ll have to fly three thousand miles for the thrill.
