                   GARDA CLASSICO GROPPELLO DOC

.

The vine variety which names this "grand" wine is unique to the Lake Garda region.  The vines require well exposed areas with a particular microclimate in order to gain perfect ripening of the grapes.  Excess humidity is particularly detrimental for this grape variety, as its tight and compact clusters of thin skinned berries are particularly sensitive to environmental conditions.  Harvest requires expert inspection of the vines.  Only healthy and mature clusters are selected for the traditional "red" fermentation where grape skins are separated from the must after five days  fermentation.  The wine is then aged in oak barrels for six months and fining is completed when bottled.  The "Garda Classico Doc Groppello has a ruby red appearance, and its flavour is fruity when young, tending towards spicy overtones with aging.

The flavour is intense and robust, with a slightly bitter and herbal aftertaste.

Beef, lamb, and other full-flavored red meats are particularly well matched with this wine.  The suggested serving temperature is 18°C, and  bottles should be opened at least one  hour before serving.  Bottles aged for more than five years should be  decanting to a glass or terra-cotta carafe before serving.
