Wine Profile / Tasting Notes

During the period of fining, the fruit becomes increases in intensity and the floral aromas develop giving the wine a more harmonious flavour.
BAROLINO DOC “LA CORTE DEL POZZO” ‘11 – GOLD MEDAL – BARDOLINO GRAPE AND WINE FESTIVAL
Morainic hills located to the East of Lake Garda in the beautiful area of Bardolino.
Short Veronese Pergola.
We harvest by hand between the second and the third week of September. The grapes grown here are the same that are planted in the Valpolicella area however the difference in the type of soil in Bardolino is reflected in the structure and aromas of this wine.
The grapes are pressed only a few hours after they are harvested and are left to ferment in steel tanks at a controlled temperature. The must is left to macerate for about 15 days after which the wine is racked o and left to fine in steel vats until bottling.
Food & Wine Pairing
Famous for its delicate structure, Bardolino pairs well with light dishes, especially those with tomato sauces or soups. It is perfect with white meat and freshwater fish and snails. Thanks to the relatively short fining period, it may be enjoyed from the spring following the harvest.
SERVING TEMPERATURE: 15 – 18° C
Since the 1990s, Fasoli Gino as been working with a community of young disadvantaged people in Bardolino. This partnership combines both important work with the social needs of the area with that of protection of the landscape. The community’s vineyards are located on a beautiful hill overlooking Lake Garda where ancient olive groves and vineyards are tended for with organic farming methods. Our choice of adding value to an area with respect to all things living, is expressed at its maximum in Bardolino where Fasoli Gino unites caring for the environment with assisting society’s needs. The grapes for this wine are cultivate by members of the “Associazione Comunita’ dei Giovani”, young adults with special needs.
