Bardolino is produced in the province of Verona to the east of Lake Garda. It takes its name from the town Bardolino on the shores of Lake Garda and was awarded Denominazione di origine controllata (DOC) status in 1968. The area has long been defined by its quality grape production, also classified by the ruling Hapsburg authorities back in 1848.
60% Corvina, 30% Rondinella and 10% Molinara.
Fermented at relatively coolish (for a red wine) 22°C for about 10 days to retain the aromatics of the fruit. Followed by malolactic fermentation. The wine is kept in stainless steel vats and bottled in the March following the vintage.
Drink now and over the next 12 months.
Perfect for light and cold starters such as smoked salmon and cappers
