Chiaro Primitivo IGT: New Wine: Wine Man Pick

Chiaro Primitivo IGT

A very welcome surprise, this wine, which has adorned portfolio and been leaving our shelves for almost 4 years without a webpage; yet the ghastly label put me off. The Prosecco from these guys is perfectly drinkable too, Dark ruby red in colour with violet highlights. The bouquet is intense with nuances of plum, black cherry and earthy, spicy aromas. The palate is medium-bodied and offers forward fruit, balanced acidity and round tannins.

Chiaro Prosecco Sparkling: New Wine

Chiaro Prosecco Sparkling

Prosecco is on the up, up, up and the moment. No doubt about that. Pages and pages are being written about it online. ‘Bubbles’ is always satisfying, but unlike Champagnes which can be quite heavy (if there’s a lot of Pinot Noir in the blend), Proseccos are lighter and fresher, and the fruit seems always vibrant with a nice balancing acidity.
