The Bardolino is located on the southeastern bank of Lake Garda. In the hierarchy of Italian wine regions, it is more at the bottom. That was not always so. There were times when the wines of the area were not inferior to those of Valpolicella. But then at some point, towards the end of the last century, more and more tourists from Germany and Austria came to the lake, which, although local color, wanted to spend as little as possible. What promoted the fatal decision with many winegrowers to switch from quality to quantity. The consequence was and is a flood of wines, which also taste little costs accordingly.
For 20 years now, Daniele Delaini has been controlling this development all the more impressive. The Avresir stands paradigmatically for his efforts: his flagship is certainly one of the big red wines of the Veneto without false modesty. The vines - Corvina, Rondinella & Molinara - grow on a small hill in little limestone floors around the winery. They deliver minimal but high -quality yield, are managed biologically and read by hand. After the fermentation, the wine stays in the wooden barrel for two years before it is filled unfiltered. For the purpose of perfect ripening, the bottles subsequently spend another year in the basement of the villa.
The result is as spectacular as it is urgent. Although rather moderate in alcohol, the Avresir has an astonishing depth. His body is short and fabric, but also has enough tannins to ensure a directional structure. The flavors make an arch of fine flower notes and herbs to red berries and cloves. Vitality, smoothness, as well as focused and reverberating fruit notes shape the finish.
