So I bought some more/different Bonarda from Oltrepo Pavese (Lombardy) because I am enchanted with the Cabanon one.
We were having lasagna so I brought up the Bonarda and opened it to decant it. The cork came out with a kick and I was staring down into some white mist in the neck. Over fermented and gone bad? I looked at the cork which was sparkling wine style and had a sip. Ah, Bonarda frizzante! Cool, recork and put in in the fridge while dinner cooks. Later upstairs, there is the slightest dull boom. Dinner is on the table so let's get the wine. Open the fridge and EVERYTHING in the fridge is covered in wine. Every condiment on the door, every surface, every jug of milk, etc, big pools on the floor and at the bottom of the vegetable drawers. The cork had not been put on tightly and it was on its side. Later. We had 1/3 of a glass left apiece to drink with dinner. It was a remarkably dull wine. Maybe it would have been better in the middle of the summer but I rank this down pretty low. No mention anywhere on the label that it was frizzante. Castello di Luzzano (Giovannella Fugazza) DOC. Avoid. After dinner, my wife and I worked together for I don't know how long to clean it up. Luckily we had some Bisceglia Terra Di Volcano Vulture to compensate. My wife said, "Now this is what I was looking for!"
