Chiaretto and Bardolino Preview on Sunday 8th March at Lazise

manifesto_anteprima_8marzo2015_600pxFor lovers of Italy’s fine rosé wines the appointment on Sunday 8th March at Lazise, on the Veronese shore of Lake Garda, simply cannot be missed: the little town will in fact host an original double “Pink Preview”.
In the historic location of the Dogana Veneta, the Bardolino Producers’ Consortium will present the Chiarettos of the 2014 vintage to the public. These wines are the result of the “Rosé Revolution” that has led the producers of the classic rosé wine from Lake Garda to aim for a much paler colour than in the past, as well as a range of scents and flavours that vary from white flowers to citrus fruits and herbs. In the nearby town hall there will also be a Preview (starting the day before, Saturday 7th March) of another typical rosé expression of Italian wine: the 2014 vintage of Rosato del Salento.
Alongside these two interpretations of the great tradition of Italian rosés made from indigenous varieties (Corvina Veronese in the case of Chiaretto and Negroamaro for the  Salento Rosato), there will also be a Preview Tasting of the 2014 vintage of Bardolino, the red wine from the hills to the east of Lake Garda.
This initiative results from cooperation between the Consorzio di tutela del Bardolino (“Bardolino Producers’ Consortium”), which in 2015 is organising its seventh annual Preview Tasting, and the DeGusto Salento association, which groups together some of the most prestigious wine making companies in Puglia. The event also enjoys the support of the Municipal Council of Lazise.
Around eighty companies will be present (about seventy from Bardolino and twelve from the Salento Peninsula) with a total of some 200 wines, presented directly by the producers at their tables. The free tasting will be open from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m..
In the harbour area there will be – as usual during the Bardolino Preview Tasting – a little market selling agricultural products of the zone, including Monte Veronese cheese, honey, hams, salamis and extra virgin olive oil.
“For the 2015 edition of our Preview Tasting,” says the President of the Producers’ Consortium for Bardolino and Chiaretto, Franco Cristoforetti, “we have the pleasure of hosting the producers from the Salento. We have in common a great tradition of rosé wines made from extraordinary indigenous grape varieties and from regions where the vineyards slope down towards splendid stretches of water: the sea in Puglia and our very own Lake Garda. Both we and our colleagues from Puglia,” concludes Cristoforetti, “are committed to spreading the good word about Italy’s indigenous rosés, and I am sure that our cooperation will contribute towards constructing a new and important element in making known the fine pink wines from our country”.
