“Muscle” Wine Tour takes place in the southern hills of Garda Lake, touching the villages of Bardolino and Garda, where the territory is particularly suitable for the production of wines such as Bardolino and Chiaretto.
“Bardolino wine is obtained predominantly from Veronese corvina grapes, with rondinella and possibly other minor grape varieties. It has a brilliant ruby red color. It is delicately fruity, with notes of cherry, marasca cherry, strawberry, raspberry, currant and spice (cinnamon, clove, black pepper). It has a great drinkability and extraordinary ability to match food.
Chiaretto is the rose version of Bardolino. It is obtained with the same grapes. The color ranges from rose petals to coral. It gives you scents of flowers, small berries (raspberry, strawberry), cherry, green apple, sweet spice, chlorophyll. Perfect as an aperitif, it combines with starters, with first courses, with both sea and lake fish, with sushi and pizza. “(Source website: http://www.bardolino-stradadelvino.it )
Starting from Affi, the tour goes down to Monte Moscal and then descends along a characteristic single track near Bardolino, where, with a small effort, it goes up and passes beautiful vineyards, you reach the “Rocca del Garda”. From here you can enjoy a wonderful view of Lake Garda, unique in its kind. We continue with a wonderful single track to the village of Garda and then climb up the valley of the Mulini, where, once at high altitude, through graceful vineyards we could stop at the Cantina Maddalena Pellegrini in Castion Veronese where you can enjoy the excellent Bardolino DOC Wine, Extra Virgin Olive Oil Garda Dop, all from Biological Agriculture. We will conclude our circuit with another pair of emotions in short but technical and intense single track downhill, to the starting place.
Medium-challenging path, most of the track does not require great technical skills, but the three single tracks within the tour make it much more adrenaline-filled and at the same time require a good understanding of MTB and a few hours of shoulder practice.
