Mi piace Bardolino!

“Graine de Moutarde” welcomes everyone to taste young italian wine of 2013 vintage.

Historically, 11th of November is celebrated as St. Martin’s day in Italy. Usually this period is rather warm and it is regarded as the last days of “indian summer” before it gets cold. This date overlaps with the time when the new wine Bardolino Novello goes out to the shops, and italians say that “on St. Martin’s day even juice becomes wine” – “A San Martino ogni mosto diventa vino”.

The wine is produced near the lake Garda, on its western band, not far from Verona. Light red wine, rather not strong, with a beautiful color of pomegranate, it’s fruity in taste and offers a good acidity and silky tannins. It would be perfect for aperitif and will also be a good match with light salads, poultry and unseasoned cheese.
