In the fertile hills overlooking Lake Garda, in the province of Verona in Italy’s northeastern region of the Veneto, lie the sprawling vineyards of Cantina Tinazzi, one of four award-winning estates that make up the greater Casa Vitivinicola Tinazzi.
Traded domestically and internationally, Cantina Tinazzi, located in Lazise, boasts three distinct lines: Selezione di Famiglia, Ca’ de’ Rocchi and Le Due Giare.
It is within the Ca’ de’ Rocchi line that we find our national gold-medal rosato (rosé): Bardolino Chiaretto “Campo delle Rose” DOC.
A blend of Corvina (70%), Rondinella (10%) and Molinara (20%), Bardolino Chiaretto “Campo delle Rose”DOC, is bright rose petal in color.
It has an elegant and fruity fragrance with floral hints of blossoming roses. Delicate on the palate, it has a flavorful and smooth taste with good acidity.
Bardolino Chiaretto “Campo delle Rose” DOC pairs well with light appetizers, antipasti, pizza and grilled vegetables; first course dishes of summer-fresh pasta and seafood risotti; and, marries well with main courses of fish — fresh and saltwater varieties — and white meats.
Best served chilled at 9-10°C in a tulip-shaped glass.
