Gorgo Chiaretto Bardolino Rose 2019
A fresh, fun and fruity rose from the Veneto region of Italy. Made from the classic grapes of the region; Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara. The nose has delicious aromas of summer fruits which follow onto the palate with notes of red cherries, strawberries and raspberries combined with a fresh, floral note and a crisp acidity.
It should be enjoyed chilled on its own or to accompany cold meats or sushi.
A wide and temperate agricultural region stretching from Venice to Verona and north to the Alpine foothills. In the west around Lake Garda, are the important generic wines - Valpolicella, Soave and Bardolino. Much of Italy`s commercial Pinot Grigio and Merlot is grown further east, but the Glera grape makes the region`s distinctly fashionable sparkling wine, Prosecco. However the recent popularity of Amarone and Ripasso has really re-established this region as one of Italy best wine growing areas and quality is out of all recognition from the light carafe wines of the early 80`s.
Gorgo was established in 1973 in the village of Custoza. Originally only 22 hectares, the estate now stretches over 60 hectares in the ‘Bianco di Custoza’ and ‘Bardolino’ production areas. The estate is owned and managed by Roberta Bricolo with a skilled viticultural team who have been in place for nearly 30 years. All the wines are hand crafted and of very high quality. The light, white soils of the region are full of pebbles and silt rich in calcium which gives the wines a distinctive mineral character.
