Riviera del Garda Bresciano Doc Chiaretto

It is our “vie en rose”. From Lake Garda, better still. Brilliant, rich in flowers, silky, soft. Absolute freshness, taste which lasts as long as the most beautiful season of life. Besides, this wine, concentrated in youth, brings in itself acute memories of flowers, the joy of being alive, a burst of laughter. Exaggeration? It could be. But when a thought is positive, one sees through rose-colored glasses. On sight, it really reminds one of the petals of a spring rose which grows up ancient walls, the joy of spring, the cherry-red of peach blossoms. The perfume of flowers is quickly perceptible. When the intensity of the aroma falls, the fineness of the fruit remains. In the mouth, it is tasty, pleasantly dry. With a final almond note.
