Bardolino Chiaretto DOC 2018

Chiaretto is based on the same grapes as Bardolino. During vinification, the juice is allowed to macerate briefly on the skins which releases a small amount of pigment and aromatic compounds.  This crucial step gives the Zenato rosato its characteristic fresh red fruit aromas.

Tasting Notes

This wine has a strong personality, offering notes of raspberries and blackcurrants with grassy undertones that are mirrored harmoniously in the mouth. On the palate, it is delicate and balanced with stuctured acidity and a lingering sweet almond finish.

Food Pairing

While it is perfect as an aperitif, this wine pairs well with hors d'oeuvres, first courses, and white meat.
