Leccio Chiaretto, Monferrato DOC - Boutinot

Leccio Chiaretto, Monferrato DOC 2022


Azienda Agricola Il Cascinone

A delicious Chiaretto from the heart of Piemonte which is sure to give any hardened Francophile a compelling alternative. Made primarily from Pinot Noir, this is fresh with delicate, crisp red summer fruit character.

Meet the producer

Il Cascinone was acquired by leading Piemonte producer Araldica in 1999 - an exceptional estate in the Monferrato hills...



Grapes were sourced from the Quercia vineyard at Il Cascinone, which produces some of the freshest, most fragrant Pinot Noir on the estate. Pinot Noir was harvested at the start of September, and Barbera in the 3rd week of September. The grapes were cool-fermented separately at 16ºC. After around 5 months on lees the parcels were blended a month before bottling.

Tasting notes

Pretty pale pink in colour. Fresh and delicate on the nose with citrus and raspberry notes. The palate balances tangy redcurrant and cherry fruit with crisp, lemony acidity leading to a clean dry finish. A delicious style of pale, food friendly rosé .

Food match

A good match with basil and goats cheese risotto, or pasta with a seafood sauce and cherry tomatoes.
