Il Cascinone Leccio Monferrato Chiaretto DOC

2018

In a Nutshell

A delicious Chiaretto from the heart of Piemonte which rivals Provence for it's fresh, crisp character.

Tasting Notes

Pretty pale pink in colour. The nose is lifted with cherry, raspberry and gently floral notes. The palate balances tangy cherry and red berry fruit with crisp, incisive acidity. A delicious style of pale rosé which is aromatic but crisp and dry.

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.
