Giovanna Tantini Bardolino DOC 2012
Wine making in the Bardolino area pe-dates the Romans, and Giovanna Tantini has been producing Bardolino since 2002. Waiting at least 18 months after the harvest before putting it on the market, along with Giovanna's particular attention to detail, this allows for the wine to develop to its full potential. Bardolino, in Giovanna's own words, is fully deserving a place at the finest tables of the world. Good persistence, soft and balanced.

About the Producer
The Tantini estate stretches across the communes of Castelnuovo del Garda and Sona in the province of Verona. It is perched on the terminal moraine overlooking Lake Garda. Family-owned since the early 20th century, it comprises 11.5 hectares of vineyards, a winery built in 2002, and a farmhouse B & B renovated in 2011. In total there are 19 hectares and the estate’s wines are produced exclusively from its own fruit.
Production of wine is this area pre-dates the Romans. Bardolino is therefore one of Italy’s oldest reds and yet its reputation is hardly better than that of a Vino da Tavola. The reasons for this are now well-rehearsed: overproduction, shoddy winemaking, and toothless regulations have all played their part in fostering an environment where quality is seldom a consideration.
At Tantini, our first and only consideration is quality. Every decision is made only after asking the question “Will this make a better wine?” We believe that both Bardolino and Bardolino Chiaretto are fully deserving of a place on the finest tables in the world. We achieve this by paying particular attention to the viticultural requirements of each variety and by minimising winery interventions.
Intense ruby red, with notes of cherry and wood berries. Good persistence, soft and balanced.
