THE BARDOLINO ESTATE


IN THE HEART OF BARDOLINO

The estate developed from the twelfth century under the leadership of the Rambaldi family. In the second part of the XVIII century, Agostino Guerrieri (1749 – 1833) married Maria Teresa Rambaldi, the last descendant of the Rambaldi and therefore the properties passed to the Guerrieri and eventually to the Rizzardi.Today the Bardolino estate houses the headquarters of Guerrieri-Rizzardi.

THE VINEYARDS

The vineyards (45 hectares) and the cellar are located in Bardolino, the centre of the DOC Classic area. The Guerrieri Rizzardi vineyards are located in two of the six municipalities in the Classic area: Bardolino and Cavaion, both located on the hills of the eastern shore of Lake Garda.
The vineyards are located at an altitude of between 70 and 190 meters above sea level. There are 35 different plots with a plant density between 2,000 and 5,000 plants per hectare.

THE GRAPES

The red grapes grown are Corvina, Rondinella, Sangiovese, Merlot and Ancellotta. The white grapes are Garganega, Cortese and Moscato Bianco. The soils are partially sandy, some more pebbly and with a greater presence of limestone. The climate is temperate, mitigated by the proximity of the lake. 

BARDOLINO’S WINES

MUNUS, Rosso Veronese IGT

The name Munus means “gift” in Latin and for Guerrieri Rizzardi this wine is agift from our best vines. Produced in limited quantities, this wine comes from the selection of the highest quality grapes produced by our best sites in Bardolino and Cavaion, both in the Classico area.

The wine has an aroma rich in Morello cherry and characteristic spicy notes that reflect the freshness of Corvina and Merlot without barrel aging.

KEYA, Bardolino DOC Chiaretto Classico

The mild climate of Lake Garda, protected from the foothills by the cold north wind, contributes to the success of this wine. It is a very elegant rosé with a soft pink colour and a pleasant fruity aroma. On the palate it is dry and intense, with good freshness.
