Garda Colli Mantovani DOC Chiaretto

This wine is made from the blend of four red grapes: Merlot, Rondinella, Rossanella ans Sangiovese.

The typical rosé colour is obtained leaving the flower must on the grape skins for one night, followed by a fermentation at controlled temperature (17-18°C). This gives elegant and fine aromas, floral and slightly fruity.
