Bardolino DOC Classico 2020 - Santa Sofia

From hillside vineyards located in the communes of Lazise and Bardolino, to the east of Lake Garda, Santa Sofia obtains the grapes with which it produces this typical Bardolino DOC Classico. Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara, in gradually decreasing percentages, this red wine of the territory is the result of a careful processing that includes first the destemming and soft crushing of the grapes, followed by a phase of maceration of about 7 days in stainless steel tanks. Then, after racking, in the following autumn, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation and, after a brief period in stainless steel, is ready to be bottled. The colour is ruby red with slight violet reflections and the nose is heady and vinous. It releases memories of sour cherries and raspberries, then liquorice root and leather. In the mouth it is pleasantly slender, finely tannic, with a pleasantly bitter finish. Juicy, crisp, fresh and persistent, it goes well with mushroom-based first courses and white meats. The Garda tradition, however, wants it to be paired with (white) polenta and stockfish.

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.
