Agricola Gorgo Bardolino Chiaretto 2022
A delicious dry rosé from the coast of Lake Garda in the west of Italy's Veneto region.
Agricola Gorgo was established in 1973 in the Village of Custoza, in the Bardolino DOC. Run by Roberta Bricolo, this 60 hectare estate produces red and white wines but it was this lovely Rosé which really caught our eye. I have been looking for a good Chiaretto, local name for their Rosés, for a while so I was pleased to find this organically farmed beauty. Made from the classic Veneto grapes Corvina, Moilinara and Rondinella planted on stony chalky soils. The grape are macerated on the skins for colour then run off for fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
Pale in colour and a delicate red fruited nose, the fresh dry cherry fruited palate opens out into a delicious mouthful. Really attractive alternative to the now ubiquitous Provencal rosés
