Il Cascinone Leccio Monferrato Chiaretto DOC

2016

In a Nutshell

A gentle, softly fruity rosé made mainly from Pinot Noir sourced from the La Quercia vineyard. This is distinguished by a large, solitary oak tree of the Leccio (Holm Oak) species which gives its name to the wine.

Tasting Notes

An appealing 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.
