OUR WINES

A UNIQUE AND AUTHENTIC EXPRESSION OF BARDOLINO WINE AND LAKE GARDA

The ultimate goal of Villa Calicantus is to demonstrate how Bardolino can (re) become a wine for aging if the grapes from which it derives come from suitable vineyards and if then the wine is respected in the cellar. Our vineyards are located in three very suitable areas of Bardolino, different for microclimate, soils and exposure. Each wine comes from only one of these three areas, and within these areas, each wine is assigned certain parcels. In this way, each wine will tell the intrinsic story of a vintage, in a specific vineyard, in a specific sub-area of ​​Bardolino. In the cellar nothing is added except very low doses of sulfur, it is fermented with indigenous grape yeasts, it is decanted and bottled following the lunar cycles, it is not filtered and it is not clarified.

A unique expression of Bardolino Chiaretto that combines seasonings, minerality, complexity and drinkability in a rosé wine modern and old at the same time. The first rosé fermented and aged in barrels in the Bardolino area, Chiar’Otto changed the way of thinking about rosé in Bardolino.
The vines for Chiar ‘ Otto are located on a hill just above the village of Bardolino: they have been planted in 1966 and they are in Pergola veronese, a local trail system.
The name CHIAR ‘ OTTO comes from the italian name “CHIARA” who, along with Daniele, is the hearth of Villa Calicantus, and “OTTO”, the italian translation of number 8, that is the number of the month in which Anna, the daughter of Chiara and Daniele, born.

SORACUNA is our daily red wine. The grapes come from three parcels of vineyard in Veronese pergola located on the hills just above the village of Bardolino. Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara and a pinch of Merlot, fermented and refined in concrete tanks, like it was used in the past.
The name SORACUNA comes from two words of the local dialect ” SORA ” and ” CUNA ” meaning ” ABOVE ” and ” BABY COT”: “going for SORA CUNA”, in our village, means going to party at the house of a new born.
2017 was the first year of production of this wine and in 2017 Anna, our daughter, was born: so we decided to name this wine as a beautiful day of celebration!

Avresir is our Riserva, the wine that we think can change the way of thinking about Bardolino wine. It comes from our best vineyard, on one of the highest hill of the area: here the influence of the lake is combined with the influence of the Alps creating an incredible micro clima that helps the grapes to ripen. Avresir is the only Bardolino aged 2 years in barrels.

OLD VINTAGES

THE FIRST 100 BOTTLES OF EVERY YEAR

We put aside the first 100 bottles of every vintage. Every bottle is wrapped in a plastic film to protect the label from humidity. We sell this bottle only after years in order to show how the Bardolino wine can well age if it’s coming from a great vineyard and it’s respected in the winery.
