In February, I wrote about Summa, a delicious Custoza Superiore produced by Cantina Gorgo, which is perfect for warm spring evenings. Today I want to highlight one of Cantina Gorgo’s red wines: 2012 Monte Maggiore Bardolino Superiore DOCG. I “discovered” this wine during my trip to VinItaly in March. I like it so much that I brought multiple bottles back to Munich.
When it comes to wine, the Veneto is known mostly for Amarone and Prosecco di Valdobbiadene but the region is home to many other interesting wines including 13 DOCG and 21 DOC titles. The diversity is incredible and ranges from bold reds to light sparklers. Not too long ago, I wrote about a Custoza Superiore from Cantina Gorgo – A Veneto wine that you should definitely try. Today I want to focus on the wines from Villa Merighi, a winery located about 20 kilometres east of Verona.
