A Taste of Mezzacorona Cabernet Sauvignon, from Lake Garda

 

Summer is upon us, and the getaway season has officially started! Are you still wavering between hiking in the mountains or go sailing? Well, if you come and visit Lake Garda (www.gardatrentino.it),  in the heart of the Italian Alps, you can do whatever you want in a matter of a few miles.

 

The choice among the outdoor activities is incredibly wide. You can go sailing, windsurfing or kite surfing. Water sports not quite your thing? You can climb the cliffs overlooking the lake or simply relax through the panoramic footpaths for passionate of  Nordic walking and trekking. You will enjoy the view from one of the many bike routes surrounding the lake, and maybe get lost in the middle of the vineyards close by.

 

 

Here, many grape varietals are grown, especially the ones that prefer milder temperatures, like Cabernet Sauvignon.  Thanks to the presence of the lake, there is an exceptional microclimate that contributes to create a Mediterranean corner right in the foothills of the Alps.

 

 

 

Mezzacorona cultivates its own grapes right here, to the north of Lake Garda, obtaining a wine of great personality and structure. Characterized by a deep ruby red color, Mezzacorona Cabernet Sauvignon has an intense and complex bouquet, with spicy notes reminiscent of eucalyptus and sweet fruits, well integrated with the distinctive fragrance deriving from the maturation in oak. This wonderful wine is the perfect companion for a variety of food pairings: red meats, flavourful roasts, game and aged cheeses.
