Beautiful Dry Rose: 2023 Guerrieri Rizzardi Keya Chiaretto Classico

Guerrieri Rizzardi Chiaretto Classico 'Keya'

Our first dry rose offer of 2024 is a lovely pink wine from Guerrieri Rizzardi, a family-owned estate that dates back to 1450. While most Italian dry roses are called rosatos, the pink wines made near Lake Garda are referred to as "chiarettos." 

Elegant, gorgeously aromatic, and offering up nice mineral notes due to the morainic soils of the region, this combines zesty red fruits and citrus with wonderful minerality and spice. Great Britain's Decanter, basically their Wine Spectator, loved this one, saying the "50-year-old vines dig deep into the mineral soils, producing a citrussy, floral, and incisive wine with a long finish."

2023 Guerrieri Rizzardi Chiaretto Classico 'Keya': Here's why you should buy it:
  • A blend of Corvina, Rondinella, Sangiovese, and Merlot grown in the hills on the eastern side of Lake Garda, these wines are rarely seen in the US because they're so beloved in Italy.
  • The aroma of this wine is full of springtime joy. Lovely notes of strawberry, peach, orange zest, and white pepper are just begging you to go in for a sip. 
  • Equally enjoyable on the palate, this tastes of honeydew melon, raspberry, honeysuckle, and spring herbs. Dry, crisp, and finishing long and satisfying, it's hard to stop drinking this one.
  • Guerrieri Rizzardi is one of the most historically significant names of the Bardolino district, with ancient noble ancestry. Translated, they know what they're doing!
