Chiaretto means “pale”, and is an Italian rosé coming from the area surrounding Lake Garda, near Verona.  This Bardolino indicates that this is a rosé version of a red wine, as such it is made from all red grapes.  On the palate this presents differently from your usual Provence style rosé.  Tart cherry comes through along with a floral element that is distinctly *not* rose petal.  There is quite a lively acidity as well with some lemon and raspberry notes, and a mild funky, savoury, tannic element on the finish, making me almost think of an orange wine, but waaay less intense.
