Saturday Kitchen Recommendation 06 November 2010

Saturday Kitchen’s charismatic wine expert Olly Smith recommended one of our wines on Saturday 6th: Bardolino ‘Naiano’ 2009 Allegrini was paired with Elaine Paige’s Hell dish of Duck. James Martin swiftly created a hearty dish of confit duck leg with flageolet ragoût and celeriac mash to accompany the wine.

Naiano is located in the hills close to the small town of Bardolino, on the eastern shore of Lake Garda. The vineyards here have a south-southwesterly aspect, giving the grapes excellent sun exposure, and the 200m altitude and cool temperatures ensure lengthy ripening.

Straightforward and unmistakably Italian, this Bardolino is bright ruby red, with a freshness of fruit and a slender frame. Lingering flavours of cherry and bitter almond add a dash of complexity.

Any simple Mediterranean cuisine will partner well with this wine, especially a lively Primavera style pasta, dressed olives, or confit duck leg with flageolet ragoût and celeriac mash as recommended on Saturday Kitchen!
