Il Cascinone Leccio Monferrato Chiaretto DOC

2017

In a Nutshell

An appealing and characterful single estate Chiaretto, produced mainly from Pinot Noir grown on the La Quercia vineyard on Araldica's Il Cascinone estate.

Tasting Notes

The nose has pretty cherry, raspberry and gently floral notes. The palate balances delicate bitter cherry and red berry fruit with crisp, incisive acidity - a refreshing style of rosé with texture and minerality.

Production Notes

Grapes were sourced from the Quercia vineyard at Il Cascinone, which produces some of the freshest, most fragrant Pinot Noir on the estate. Pinot Noir was harvested at the start of September, and Barbera in the 3rd week of September. The grapes were cool-fermented separately at 16ºC. After around 5 months on lees the parcels were blended a month before bottling.
