This Bardolino Chiaretto (PINK) wine takes its name from the town of Bardolino on the shore of Lake Garda. The wine is typically lighter and fresher than Valpolicella -- sort of a northern Italian splash of pleasure.
It's made from the same grapes as Valpolicella, with the addition of one called the negrara.
if you were a simultaneous interpreter you would need to have more than a word for saying PINK. That is:
- Vin Gris (from the French for ‘Grey Wine’).
- Blush (actually the word comes from the English translation of the German word Weissherbst – white harvest).
- Pelure d’Oignon (from the French again for ‘Onion Skin’).
- Rosato (from the Italian for ‘Rosé’ that actually comes from the French for ‘Rosato’).
Can you perceive that hue of tangerine or grapefruit?
This good rosé has and holds a natural balance of acidity and fruit and a refreshingly crisp finish;
Best served chilled, it’s a great companion to grilled or cold meat, a summer pasta salad, and any shrimp, scallop or crab dish. Try it as well with chicken (either barbecued or in a salad) or grilled or pan-seared halibut or salmon.
