Cavalchina 2018 Chiaretto (Bardolino) - Vinous 93pt
Rosè wine from Italy
Drinking window: 2019 - 2020
Straw-pink with a copper tinge. The very clean nose offers fresh pomegranate, apple, pear and herb aromas.
Then also clean and fresh in the mouth, with some hints of residual sweetness enrobing the melon and pink grapefruit flavors. A lovely Rosè from a recognized master in the making of Chiarettos. Made with a blend of 55% Corvina, 35% Rondinella and 10% Molinara; the presence of the latter grape is absolutely key in explaining this wine’s freshness and saline bent (plus the fact that many of this estate’s vines are extremely old, planted back in 1911).
