Bardolino Superiore D.O.C.G.
Podere Monte Maggiore

Bardolino Superiore d.o.c.g., denomination of controlled and guaranteed origin, is the emblem of the wine estate: “pride in traditions and the courage to renovate”. We have selected a particularly suited micro-area, we have limited the grape-hectare and grape-wine yield, we have followed a different vinification and ageing method to give life to a rich wine, with a full-bodied structure to stand the passing of time without loosing its distinguishing gentle and fruity features deriving from the grapes of local varietals.

Vines: Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara.
Training system and yield: Gujot - 90q/ha with max wine yield by 70%
Vinification: Overripe grapes from the vineyards, maceration on
the skins for 10 days with controlled-temperature fermentation between 25/28°C
Ageing: 12 months: partially in stainless steel vats and partially in barrique, followed by bottle ageing.
Colour: Intense ruby red, almost purple.
Bouquet: Intense scent of red fruits,mostly ripe cherry and marasca.
Flavour: Velvety and full-bodied, intense but never common.
Alcohol level: 12,5% vol
