Trends in the wine world such as international grape varieties and heavy use of new oak have threatened the Veneto’s rich history of viticulture, but luckily steadfast producers like Corte Gardoni have firmly stood up for and sought to preserve their local traditions. Founder Gianni Piccoli not only pioneered sustainable viticulture in the Bardolino zone but also championed its native grapes like Corvina and Garganega when many producers turned to Chardonnay and Cabernet. Gianni’s three sons carry on his work, crafting deliciously refreshing wines from their stony vineyards south of Lake Garda. This red is a blend of Corvina, Rondinella, and Sangiovese from their top parcels. Aged for a year in oak botti before bottling, it is their most structured wine, yet it has a silky elegance and bright, spicy aromas that beckon. Don’t be afraid to age it for a few years, though: with some bottle age, certain Bardolinos have been known to mimic fine red Burgundy. –Anthony Lynch
