Description

The grapes of Bardolino Chiaretto come from the selection "Vigne Alte" a hill area morainic origin from the eastern shores of Lake Garda. The harvest of the best grapes is done by hand at optimum ripeness, followed by a temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks after a long maceration.

Estate

Sitting in the hills of Bardolino, the Zeni family has spent the last 150 years dedicating themselves to producing some of the finest wines in Verona. With land holdings of 60 hectares of vines, the family operates two wineries, one located in Bardolino and the other in Valpolicella. Zeni’s world renowned wine museum also drives attention to the company, receiving over 100,000 visitors a year.

Since 1870 the Zeni Family have been dedicated to growing and producing classic Veronese wines. Fausto, Elena and Federica run the business following in their father Gaetano ‘Nino’ Zeni's footsteps. Ideally situated in the heart of the region they have the pick of the bunch from the long-term contract growers they deal with to help supplement their own production. They now manage 25 hectares of vineyards. Only the best grapes can result in wines with such a distinctive character that are true expressions of a unique terroir.

Food Pairing

Serve the Bardolino as an aperitif or with fish starters, white meat, seafood risotto, pasta or crunchy summer salads.
