Red wines

Bardolino D.O.C.

D.O.C.

Bardolino wine originates from a blend of red berry grape varieties, autochthonous in the area of Verona, in conformity with the 1968 D.O.C. laws.

This wine comes from the vineyards raised all along the morainic hills of Lake Garda and is named after the homonymous town. These vineyards are spread towards the inland across 14 municipalities.

It displays a light ruby red – sometimes with cherry red nuances – turning into garnet red with the ageing. Its organoleptic features suggest to serve it mildly fresh for a pleasant taste.

Characteristics

A bright ruby red color.

A delicate and graceful fragrance recalling wild berries, cherry and red berries, slightly spicy, white pepper.

In the mouth, it is crispy, fruity, with notes of rhubarb and cloves. Dry, with a fine and intriguing tannin.
