Look, this is just one man’s opinion when it comes to the label. But when it comes to the actual wine, there’s no question that it’s fantastic. Just how good is it? Listen to this and tell me how many Roses you know that could fit this bill:
92 points from Decanter, 93 points from Wine Enthusiast, and the #28 spot on this year’s 2023 Top 100 Best Buys (to be announced online in a few weeks)…AND all of that for only $15/bottle?!?
It’s truly a 1-of-1 bottle.
You aren’t going to do better finding a racy, mouthwateringly spicy, zipped-up bottle of Rose than this Italian gem. You’re certainly not going to find one as highly rated or highly recommended by two very-well respected wine critics. And, of course, you won’t find an uglier label out there either.
93 Points, Wine Enthusiast (#28 Top 100)
Crisp and savory, this pretty, refreshing rose delivers flavors of juicy red cherry and pomegranate while notes of fennel seed and white pepper keep it interesting. It has nice energy thanks to bright acidity. It closes on a pleasantly bitter note.
92 Points, Decanter
This crunchy Chiaretto, the result of the separate vinification of Corvina, Rondinella and (traces of) Molinara, is born among the majestic moraines south of the lake. Ageing in stainless steel tanks at 8°C for six months gives delicate notes of red fruits, soft and tasty, enlivened by hints of pepper and aromatic herbs for a harmonious sip.
