Bardolino Superiore, Veneto, Italy
Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara & Sangiovese
Villa Calicantus is located in Calmasino, a tiny village on the eastern banks of Lake Garda, Italy’s largest lake. Winemaker, Daniele Delaini, is making some of the most soulful and low intervention wines in the Bardolino region. He has put Bardolino, a blend usually known has inexpensive bulk wine, back on the respectable and interesting map of wine. Thisdeliciously fresh, beautifully expressive blend has notes of Bing cherry, raspberry, hints of chocolate and well integrated tannin with neutral oak. Enjoy this elegant red with grilled fish (tuna, swordfish or salmon), young, light and creamy cheeses or light pork dishes.
