Il Cascinone Leccio Monferrato Chiaretto DOC

2015

In a Nutshell

The first vintage of this appealing and characterful single estate Chiaretto from Araldica's Cascinone estate

Tasting Notes

An appealing pale, coral pink - the nose has pretty red berry, strawberry and gently floral notes. The palate balances delicate bitter cherry and redcurrant fruit with crisp, incisive acidity - a refreshing style of rosé with texture and minerality.

Production Notes

The grapes were cool-fermented separately at 16ºC. After around 5 months on lees the parcels were blended - a month before bottling.
