A dry rosé wine with a delicate scent of berry fruits (raspberries, redcurrants) and wild flowers, accompanied by light and refreshing hints of green apples and subtle spicy tones of cinnamon, cloves and vanilla. On the palate the Chiaretto reveals its juicy sensations of red berry fruits along with an appealing and refreshing youthful acidity.

Monte del Frà is located in the heart of the Custoza area, on the east side of Lake Garda and only 15 Km away from the centre of Verona. It was founded by brothers Eligio and Claudio Bonomo in 1958.
The farm owns 140 hectares. Its history is linked to the grand crus such as Cà del Magro, il vigneto Colombara, Grottino, Staffalo, Monte Godi, Monte Fitti, Mascarpine, Bagolina, Pezzarara and Monte del Frà. For the past decade or so, the Bonomo family have also owned a beautiful winery in the Valpolicella Classica village of Fumane. The Bonomo family are passionate about nature and believe that the key to great wine is the emphasis put on the cultivation of the vines. The vineyards are planted in Guyot in the areas of Cusotza, Bardolino and Lugana and with the classic "pergola" system in the Valpolicella Classica. The grapes are of very high quality, since the maximum fruit production per plant is 2-3kg.
The vineyards are completely irrigated through a drip irrigation system, to ensure that the vines are hydrated all year round. Modern winemaking techniques are then applied in the cellar to preserve the characteristic of the grapes and produce excellent wines. Thanks to the family’s attention to detail in every stage of the wines production, the wines have received international recognition.
