Bardolino, the small wine region around the place of the same name on Lake Garda, was once famous for his rose wine - the Chiaretto. He became a victim of mass tourism on his banks. For a few years and undeterred by the dreary reputation of the area Daniele Delaini from Villa Calicantus, he has been leading him back to old shine. You can already see how serious it is by using the grapes of the oldest plots of his winery for his pink interpretation. In 1966, its yield is low in a surface characterized by moraine deposits, but the berries have substance and character.
Read with perfect ripening, the grapes migrate to a cement tub, where they macerate for one night. Then they are gently pressed, spontaneously fermented and matured in used wooden barrels for several months.
The obvious consequence of this approach, which focuses on the highest quality, is a fabric and juicy rosato with substance, body, length and potential for the coming years. He also distinguishes liveliness, freshness, temperament and a complex variety of flavors, which you always want at Rosé, but hardly ever gets. None are made.
