Vini Sassara is a fourteen hectare beautiful estate nestled in the hills of Valeggio sul Mincio in the Veneto, just south of Lake Garda, close to the town of Custoza at the southern end of the Bardolino DOC. (That's right - è arrivato il Bardolino naturale!) Ten hectares are dedicated to vines, while the other four are made up of woodlands and olive groves. These are wines that represent a fight of two cultures - on the one hand the highly lucrative modernistic culture of conventional, heavily extracted, "international" wines like Amarone and Valpolicella, and on the other, the fight "for the soul and for the soil" of the region,which are wines that express the true authenticity of Bardolino's past - wines that are full of bright, juicy, joyous fruit and minerality and speak of the people that have lived (and drunk wine!) there for centuries. Welcome to the past and future of Bardolino.
