Why we love it
Bardolino, to be allowed to use "superiore" word on the label, according to the "disciplinare", the regulation, it must have a 0.5% more alcohol content than what the normal Bardolino disclipinare states. However, not only the disciplinare is outdated, it was written when Italian wines were still low in alcohol, it did not take into account the climate change, but this Bardolino Superiore has much more.
Made from grapes grown in the heart of the "classico" area, this Bardolino Superiore has a complex nose, with hints of vanilla due to the wood ageing and red fruit. On the palate is full, smooth, elegant, fruity, structured and with a long finish. This Bardolino Superiore is perfect with stews or rich dishes or to accompany semi mature cheeses.
