Bardolino Chiaretto DOC Classico 2021 - Santa Sofia

Chiaretto 'more identity and stylistically focused'. This seems to be the new trend among Bardolino producers, including Santa Sofia. The "revolution" of Chiaretto consists in proposing wines with a very deep and bright pink colour, on the model of the rosés of Provence, and finer from an aromatic point of view. A fine example is this Bardolino Chiaretto DOC Classico, produced with grapes from the hillside vineyards in the communes of Lazise and Bardolino, to the east of Lake Garda. The blend includes a large part of Corvina grapes, about 55%, to which Rondinella and Molinara are added in smaller percentages. All the grapes are vinified in rosé, that is with partial maceration of the solid parts and, at the end of vinification, the wine is left to mature in stainless steel containers before being bottled for a further period of at least 3 months in the bottle. Brilliant coral in colour, with strong auburn reflections, the nose expresses notes of aromatic herbs, such as oregano and marjoram, and fruity ones, with raspberries, sour cherries and pomegranates. Finally, it is also possible to detect persuasive mineral, almost marine, sensations. In the mouth it is harmonious and drinkable. Soft but enlivened by a pleasant freshness. A very versatile wine, from fish and vegetable hors d'oeuvres to first courses dressed in red, it is really difficult to make a wrong choice. Also perfect with a delicious Neapolitan pizza with anchovies.

It is located in a beautiful site, that is, on a hill that rises very easily, which covers part of the city and is between two small valleys: all the surrounding hills are very pleasant and full of good water. It is with these words that Andrea Palladio described the places where the Santa Sofia winery is located today. We are in Valpolicella, the land of wine. The cellars are located below and to the side of Villa Santa Sofia, formerly known as Villa Serego. Begun in 1560 to a design by Andrea Palladio, the villa was built on commission by Marcantonio Serego, a highly respected nobleman who was married to Ginevra Alighieri. A historic winery in the territory (in the true sense of the term), Santa Sofia is now owned by Giancarlo Begnoni. Approximately 40 hectares of vineyards produce wines with a classic and traditional style. After all, in a place like this, it would be impossible not to.
