Consorzio Tutela Vino Bardolino DOC
Yes, preparation is everything, especially when it comes to wine. The Chiaretto Consorzio Tutela Vino Bardolino DOC organized an amazing press tour to facilitate a closer look into this lesser known Italian indigenous varietal. Chiaretto is a dry rosé wine produced primarily from Corvina grapes in Northern Italy on Lake Garda. Production extends into the provinces of Brescia in Lombardia and Verona in Veneto. As this was my first taste of this Italian DOC, I was very excited to taste the pink goodness! Chiaretto is light, dry, crisp and pairs well with a variety of foods.
My palate was pleased with a wonderful preview of Chiaretto at a delicious Pizzeria in Lake Garda. Although many of these Chiarettos will be discussed in further detail in upcoming posts, here are some of the wines previewed:
