Why we love it
This organic Bardolino Classico, made from hand picked grapes grown in the heart of the appellation, the "classico" area, is a multi award winning red wine, with a fruity nose, slightly spiced, fresh. On the palate the wine is fruity, medium bodied, smooth, lively, with a never ending finish of red cherry. This Bardolino Classico is a vegan friendly wine.
Bardolino is often seen as the second choice compared to a Valpolicella due to the many similarities, from the grapes allowed to the closeness of the appellations, however, a Bardolino when properly made can be a great alternative, a very good red wine, a simple great red wine.
This Bardolino Classico is a very versatile red wine, a perfect accompaniment to pasta or pizza or to drink on its own over some tarallini. Delicious
The artisan who made it
Le Tende is a family run winery located on the Lake Garda, between Colà di Lazise and Cavaion Veronese, on a land that is blessed with a mild climate that has always been particularly suited for the production of great wines. The Le Tende is also a small olive orchard from which they produce an olive oil which is manly used by the family and a small percentage given to selected importers like us. Le Tende winery follows organic and natural farming and it has been the case from the beginning, they firmly believe in protecting and respecting the environment.
Le Tende vineyards are located in the heart of the Bardolino Classico and Custoza areas, with the most northern vineyards in the Custoza appellation where the particular soil with sandy and strongly calcareous texture gives the wine a particular aromaticity and minerality.
Le Tende winery grows the local native grapes with the addition of the international cabernet sauvignon that has found a home on the lake shore.
