Bardolino Classico Superiore “Avresir”
Avresir comes from the oldest vines (18 yrs old) from the highest part of the hill around the villa, a mere 30m away from the vines that make the La Superiora. There is more limestone influence in the soil here. Because there is no Riserva category in Bardolino, Daniele uses Avresir, Riserva spelled backwards.
The co-harvest of Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara, and Sangiovese is fermented in a small stainless steel vat, which allows Daniele to have a more hands-on approach during fermentation so he can work the skins better. In some vintages, some stems are included. Compared to the La Superiora, he is working more in extraction here, and less in infusion. It is aged 2 years in a 1300L Slavonian oak botte and another year in bottle before release. 2,284 bottles made.
