Why we love it
Groppello Garda Classico DOC – Bellerive is a tasty blend of Groppello, Marzemino, Barberaand Sangiovese grapes. It is a young and full-bodied red wine. The senses are stimulated with the flavor and the perfume of the red grapes of Garda; fruity with a bitter almond aftertaste. Goes well with cured meats, cold cuts, medium aged cheese, grilled meats and basic pasta dishes.
The artisan who made it
The Avanzi winery, located on the shore of Lake Garda, has been making wine for three generations, growing local grapes from Trebbiano di Lugana to produce their Lugana to the less known Groppello and Marzemino, together with international grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon. Nicola, together with his brother and cousins, the current generation together with the previous one still actively involved, work tirelessly to make outstanding wines.
