Il Cascinone Leccio Monferrato Chiaretto, 2017

An appealing and characterful single estate Chiaretto, produced mainly from Pinot Noir grown on the La Quercia vineyard on Araldica's Il Cascinone estate. This s distinguished by a large solitary Holm oak tree (or Leccio) which gives it's name to the wine. This species is often found in Piemonte truffle orchards, where the truffles grow around the tree roots.


60% Pinot Nero | 40% Barbera

How it's made

Grapes were sourced from the Quercia vineyard at Il Cascinone, which produces some of the freshest, most fragrant Pinot Noir on the estate. Pinot Noir was harvested at the start of September and Barbera in the 3rd week of September. The grapes were cool-fermented separately at 61 degrees F. After around 5 months on lees the parcels were blended, a month before bottling.

Tasting Notes

The nose has pretty cherry, raspberry and gently floral notes. The palate balances delicate bitter cherry and red berry fruit with crisp, incisive acidity – a refreshing style of rosé with texture and minerality.

Food Match

A good match with basil, goats cheese risotto or pasta with seafood sauce and cherry tomatoes.
