Le Tende, Bardolino Classico, 2022

The principal wine here. It’s a very superior Bardolino, for two reasons: a high - 80% - proportion of the superior Corvina grape, accompanied by 20% Rondinella; and eight days maceration on the skins gives considerable texture. Quite soft and pale in tone, it offers up a charming perfume of red cherries; and then a pretty mouthful of red fruit. Light and juicy, delightfully ripe but not in the least sweet, this has a magical poise and purity. The 2020 vintage was a Tre Bicchieri winner, the top ranking in the prominent Gambero Rosso wine guide, rare for a wine so modestly priced. Tasting this delicious example one can see why. Now-2025

"Lightish ruby. Gorgeous aroma of red cherry and wild strawberry, glowing with fresh red fruits, but smells perfumed and tangy rather than sweet. Medium-bodied with gently and nicely chewy tannins. Both charming enough to be drunk on its own (slightly cool) and well-built for the table. VGV and surprisingly long aftertaste. So drinkable." 16.5/20,  2023-2025, Julia Harding MW, www.jancisrobinson.com, 2nd December 2023

Great choice of good-value wines in the January sales. The website is really easy to use to make up an order. Delivery, as is often the case, was within 24 hours and, as usual, was well-packed.
