The Ideal Glass

The Burgundy glass is the perfect glass for light and fruity red wines.

The glass is broader than other red wine glasses.

The larger bowl has the function of accumulating the aromas of delicate red wines. It also allows a proper swirling, channeling aromas upward.

In addition, the style of the glass directs the wine to the tip of your tongue for a better reception of the tastes.

About Bardolino

The blend of grapes used to produce Bardolino includes Corvina, Rondinella, and Molinara.

These grapes are also used to produce Valpolicella, but the two wines are quite different.

Bardolino contains less Corvina and more Rondinella. Other blending grapes (max 15%) can be Rossignola, Barbera, Sangiovese, and Garganega.

Bardolino DOC(G)

Bardolino Superiore wines got the DOC status in 1968 and DOCG in 2001.

DOCG rules are: minimum alcohol level 12% and 1 year aging.

Veneto

Veneto is famous for its capital Venezia, and the wines Prosecco, Soave, and Amarone.

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
