A nice discovery . . . Monferrato Chiaretto

Posted by bropaul, Aug 9, 2010.

I had known about Bardolino Chiaretto but was unaware that there were others. So I was surprised the other day when I was studying my local wine purveyor's offerings of rose' and saw a bottle of Monferrato Chiaretto. The wine was a Pico Maccario Monferrato Chiaretto Berro '09, made from local grapes in Piedmont.. I shared it with friends last night at a local BYOB (You can say what you want about New Jersey, but we are blessed to have a state that lets you bring your own wine to a restaurant!). Well, it was lovely. The wine is redolent of strawberries and substantial enough to stand up to some highly flavored entrees. I'll be heading back for more!
