Let’s discover Valtènesi

Among vineyards, suggestive villages, sanctuaries of ancient devotion and castles dating back to the 10th century, you will discover Valtènesi, famous for the beauty of the lake and hilly landscape and for the production of rosé wines, whose characteristic vine and great heritage is Groppello.

A Pompeo Molmenti la Cantina Costaripa ha voluto dedicare uno dei suoi famosi vini rosa, premiato con i Tre Bicchieri, gli Oscar del vino.

Chiaretto is nicknamed “the wine of a night”; a name that derives from the personal vinification system implemented in an operation that takes place over the course of a single night, by each producer and which gives each individual Chiaretto a unique color, scent and fragrance.

Il Consorzio Valtènesi Riviera del Garda Classico,promoted by the enterprising Jury Pagani, it protects the cultivation and production of this rich variety of red and white wines that blend harmoniously with a landscape of great charm, among hills, olive trees and luxuriant Mediterranean vegetation.

The excellent combination of Chiaretto with dishes based on lake fish and extra virgin olive oil (all produced in the Garda area) and the intrinsic beauty of the hills of Lake Garda stimulates beautiful trips on the lake. It is no coincidence that “Italia in Rosa”, the largest Italian event dedicated to rosé wines, is right here in the precious setting of the castle of Moniga del Garda. www.italiainrosa.it
