Villa Giada Rose Monferrato Chiaretto
Monferrato Chiaretto DOC
Grapes Barbera, Nebbiolo
Villa Giada’s Rosé is a Monferrato Chiaretto, a traditional but rare ‘vin de nuit’ from Barbera and Nebbiolo grown in the estates’ vineyards in Agliano Terme. Unearthing great Rosato remains a bit a holy grail for us, there are so many styles of ‘pink wine’ in Italy and as yet there are very few exceptional ones. The 2010 marked the arrival of Andrea’s move into the top echelons when the cuvee changed to Barbera (80%) and Nebbiolo (20%). Emma still thinks it should be called Emma because she told poor Andrea to make it.
There is a little more colour on the 2013, that’s just the way it was and Andrea is fighting the temptation to become a total victim of fashion – a tough call in the world of rosé. The fruit is fresh and pure, alluring strawberry and cherry, just a touch of cream, divine. 13.5%
