For a crisp, characterful and aromatic rosato, this is 96 points bang on. It’s an authentic taste of Bardolino’s Chiaretto – an intensely pink rosé made from native grapes Corvina and Rondinella. Mineral fresh, citrusy with classic red berry notes.
"Bardolino’s classic charm – lots of breezy freshness and delicate, blossom scented red fruits"
Leo Bassano Buyer for Italy
Bardolino is a less well known appellation of northeastern Italy, next door to Valpolicella. Both make very fresh wines of all hues, thanks partly to the proximity of the mountains. Walter Delibori and Giorgio Cristoforetti founded Cantine Delibori – at the heart of the appellation and close to Lake Garda – 40 years ago. They work with a number of estates, the grapes for this pretty pink coming from Cà del Fer. It uses the classic grapes of this area – Corvina and Rondinella (the same as in Valpolicella) – the juice left on the skins for just a few hours to lend a delicate hue to the wine. Cherry fruit, floral hints and a bright, lemony, mineral freshness – a perfectly balanced rosato for drinking solo, with salads, seafood or creamy pasta.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
