BARDOLINO D.O.C.

This is the Prince amongst the wines we produce. We’ve been producing Bardolino since 2002, and we always wait at least 18 months after the grape harvest before putting it on the market. This allows for the correct re nement process, first in steel and afterwards in bottles. Over the years our Bardolino has progressively ensured long life while maintaining and developing it’s original characteristics. This permits us to have 2 or 3 different years on the market simultaneously, giving rise in recent years to vertical Bardolino tasting.
