                 VALTENESI CHIARETTO DI MONIGA D.O.C

.

This wine, unique among those produced in Italy, originated in 1896 in Moniga del Garda, following the ideas of Senator Pompeo Molmenti.  The grape varieties blended for "Chiaretto DOC" include Groppello, Marzemino, Sangiovese and Barbera, which  found an ideal substrate and microclimate on the morainic hills of Lake Garda, particularly in the "Valtenesi" area.

The must is separated from the solids through a classical method, "levata di cappello", literally to 'take off the hat' a few hours after the crush, in order to retain the desired blush color and maintain a young and fresh aroma.  This wine has delicate features: it has a pink color with purple highlights.  It has a delicate, fresh and fruity bouquet with almond like features.  Its best overall quality is gained a few  months after harvest. 

Served in tulip-shaped glasses, this wine will surprise the connoisseur, and will suggest combinations with light, not too elaborate courses, appetizers, side dishes, freshwater fish, and white meats. It is the perfect wine for a summer outing or an "al fresco" picnic by the Lake.

Suggested serving temperature ranges between 10-12° C.
