Bardolino Classico

Bardolino Classico DOC

65% Corvina, 30% Rondinella, 5% Molinara

For fans of Oregon Pinot Noir and the "Vin de Soif" craze, this one's for you. A Light-bodied wine with low tannins, this delicate red wine is full of flavor. A classic blend of indigenous grapes, the majority is Corvina which adds the earthy/black pepper notes complementing tart red fruits of strawberry, cherry, and pomegranate. This Classic expression from Bardolino is perfect with a little chill and offers a hint of blood orange in an energetic finish. We just can't get enough.

POINTS OF INTEREST

Bardolino has lived under the shadow of the Valpolicella for decades. Producers like Le Morette are leading the charge to change that, expressing the true terroir and authentic character of what makes Bardolino special: REFRESHING, DRINKABILITY. With three generations dedicated to native grapes and the utmost respect for the land, Fabio and Paolo Zenato carry the torch of the family tradition building a new energy efficient winery in 2013.

Chiaretto Classico Rosé

Bardolino Chiaretto Classico DOC

55% Corvina, 35% Rondinella, 10% Molinara

Made from the indigenous grapes of the region, you won't find many rosés in the world that have this amount of character and freshness for the price. The aromatics are lively with peach blossom, grapefruit, wild strawberries, and stone fruit. The mid-palate brings a touch of strawberry cream and a satisfying weight, and the finish is bone-dry with hints of white pepper and lingering citrus.

POINTS OF INTEREST

Italy's largest lake, Lake Garda, has a history of making rosé-like wines for hundreds of years. Here on the lake, they don't refer to these wines as rosato or rosé, but they have their own name for it, Chiaretto, meaning "the little pale one". The term Chiaretto dates back to the 1800s. The small family of estate of Le Morette has 3 generations of experience crafting the finest rosé style wines in the Classic area of Bardolino, very close to the eastern shore of the lake.

Chiaretto Cepage Rosé

Bardolino Chiaretto Classico DOC

55% Corvina, 35% Rondinella, 10% Molinara

An approachable brut style with pronounced fruit flavors that generously express watermelon, peach, apricot, and strawberry. The fruit is carefully selected for acidity and balance and the bubbles are persistent and creamy. Sparkling wine isn’t just for special occasions, we think “Cepage” is perfect for celebrating life's daily pleasures and breaking bread with friends and family.

POINTS OF INTEREST

Harvested from vineyards overlooking Italy's largest lake, this wine pairs perfectly with sunshine and relaxing moments. Whether it's the ocean, lake, pool, or your bathtub, this wine will put a smile on your face and transport you to a better place. A great wine needs two other important ingredients, good friends and good food, but sometimes sunshine or ocean waves make for a rewarding replacement!
