(2021) The vineyards of Bardolino, around Lake Garda in northern Italy, specialise in pink 'Chiaretto' wines. Though the blend here is not listed, expect local varieties like Corvina, Corvinone and Molinara, made in a pale and attracive Provençal style. Rosehip, watermelon and small scents of raspberry and redcurrant lead on to a palate that is basically dry, with a little hint of sweetness in the finish, but balanced, fruity and the perfect summer in the garden rosé with its easy-drinking style and 12% alcohol.
(2015) Pale and sleek in a tall, slim bottle, there's a tiny bit of Merlot in the blend for colour. With some straw and light herb notes, the character is dry, some redcurrant and a touch of red liquorice in there, before a palate that offers more of the same, with a savoury character and dry, appetising finish.
