The vineyards cover 16 hectares around the village of Calmasino, in the commune of Bardolino. They are situated in the hinterland of Lake Garda, in the heart of the historic Bardolino Classico production zone

Vinification:

Traditionally, Chiaretto is obtained by cold maceration of the must on the skins for a single night. Today, a part of the must makes just a few hours maceration, to obtain a very light colour The skins contain the grapes’ natural colouring matter, which is thus yielded into the wine to just a limited degree. Fermentation takes place at controlled temperatures of between 16° and 18°C in order to enhance the expression of the wine’s fruity and floral aromas Maturation: the wine is bottled whilst still young, and should preferably be drunk within a year of the vintage

Number of bottles produced:

30.000
