Bardolino is a young red with a pleasant, fresh flavour and a bouquet of
fruit and spices. A simple, undemanding wine, it is perfect at any moment
and with every dish. Excellent with pasta starters served with meat,
vegetable, mushroom and fish sauces. Delicious with legume soup, and
with stewed, baked and grilled meat from farm animals. Interesting if
combined with mushroom- and chestnut-based dishes. At Lake Garda,
Bardolino is traditionally served with polenta and stockfish, and boiled
mixed meats with Peerà, all typical Veneto dishes. Excellent served fresh
(10 - 12 °C) in summer, fabulous with freshwater fish!
