Bardolino is a light red wine made on the eastern shores of Lake Garda, in the Veneto region of north-eastern Italy. Its DOC title was granted in 1968.
Like its more famous neighbor, Valpolicella, Bardolino is made from a blend of Corvina and Rondinella. The former constitutes 35–65% of any Bardolino or Bardolino Classico wine, contributing structure, weight and a sour-cherry aroma; Rondinella is responsible for the wine's characteristic and appealingly fresh, herby flavor. Also permitted is an addition of up to 20% Molinara. Changes to the DOC restrictions of Bardolino, and its superior DOCG wine Bardolino Superiore, have meant that Barbera, Sangiovese, Marzemino, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon may also be used in the blend (limited to a combined maximum of 20%).
