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.

Bardolino ‘Naiano’ 2009 Allegrini
Buy 2 bottles save £4 = £5.99*

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!
