About this deal

After destemming and a gentle crushing, the must was macerated briefly on the skins before cold stabilisation. In spring, the village holds the Palio del Chiaretto: a long itinerary from Cisano to Punta Cornicello, during which you can taste the Bardolino Chiaretto in both its “Classico DOC” and “Spumante DOC” version. According to the 2018 procedural guideline the Corvina variety represents between 35% and 95 % of grapes used for production. Masi wine is a native of the Valpolicella Classica region in Italy; however, it successfully owns and manages two famous organic wine estates in Tuscany and Argentina. Up to 15% of the blend is allowed to include Rossignola, Barbera, Sangiovese, or Garganega, in any combination.

The rich soil diversity, exquisite climate, and natural conditions of the place inspired the family to set up its company right in that valley. Average altitude and composition: The hills are located at 100/150 meters above sea level, of morainic origin with calcareous, clayey, gravelly, sandy soil. However its supremacy was challenged in the 1970s and 1980s by Molinara, due to the high yields it can achieve.

Finally the Bardolino “Superiore” – marked with the DOCG since 2001 – peaks with its taste and smell and its alcoholic strength that is higher than in the “basic” version. Still in the Middle Ages the monks and religious institutions had a key role in developing the vine cultivation that is tightly connected with the Christian community due to cultural and liturgical reasons. In the new winery he also decided to establish the wine museum to promote the culture and the story of wine growing and wine making.
