Leccio Monferrato Chiaretto
This product is currently sold out.
Leccio Monferrato Chiaretto is 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. Holm oaks are often found in Piemonte truffle orchards - the truffles grow around the trees' roots. An appealing pale, 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. A good match with basil and goats cheese risotto, or pasta with a seafood sauce and cherry tomatoes.Country: Italy
