Le Fraghe is one of Veneto’s most respected winemakers, and it doesn’t matter which side of the river or lake we’re talking about. These wines have been staples in the NYC Italian restaurant scene for over a decade, but rarely made their way over to New Jersey.
Le Frage’s winery sits perfectly perched overlooking the shores of Lake Garda. It benefits from the protection of the Dolomite Mountains, the micro-climate of the Adige River, and the mineral-rich soil surrounding the lake. The wines Le Fraghe makes are perfect for this weather—bright, fresh, crunchy and zippy, the kind that absolutely shines when it’s served slightly chilled in a glass.
Of course, even with the best conditions, these wines still need the right hands. To that end, nobody is better suited to run the place than Matilde Poggi. Matilde is a legitimate institution in her neck of the woods, a leading winemaker and businesswoman who has excelled at the helm of Le Fraghe for almost forty years now.

This deceptively simple blend of 80% Corvina and 20% Rondinella from Matilde Poggi’s estate at Cavaion Veronese is an epicurean masterpiece. The ripe and sweet-smelling nose of red and black cherries has a hint of violet. The palate is ripe and fresh, and so juicy thanks to crisp acidity. It finishes as clean as a whistle and is utterly delicious. Organic.
