In the Barbera grape vineyard that Cascina La Badia uses to make its Monferrato DOC Chiaretto there is a wild medlar plant that has grown wild in a row.
Hence the name of this wine, Puciu, meaning medlar in Piedmontese dialect.
It is rose petal in color, with pleasant vivid highlights.
A fresh bouquet, where floral and fruity notes follow each other in harmony.
The sip is fresh, full and pleasant. The finish is persistent, with a pleasant fruity aftertaste.
Chiaretto is a versatile wine that you can pair with almost any course. To be on the safe side, favor aperitifs, appetizers (fish and meat) and cheeses.
To avoid: desserts and meat stews.
It’s your guy if…
…You love freshness!
