18 e Quarantacinque
Riviera del Garda Classico DOC
Chiaretto

At the close of a summer’s day in 1859, the bloody Risorgimento battle of San Martino between the Austrian army and that of the House of Savoy ended with an armistice: it was 6.45 p.m. on 24th June.

As a tribute to our history, we decided to give this wine the name of this momentous hour: it has the bright, lively colour of a summer sunset.


Grape varieties: Groppello, Marzemino, Sangiovese and Barbera

Type of soil: morainic, with combinations of clays and limestone, rich in mineral salts

Vines per hectare: 3000 

Harvest period: early October

Type of harvest: manual, in small crates, passing twice through the vineyard

Vinification: in stainless steel, with limited skin/must contact

Maturation: in stainless steel for 7 months, around 6 of which on its fine lees 

Alcohol level: 12.5% - 13.0% vol.

Its colour is a pale pink, with very faint ruby highlights.

On the nose it is fine, appealingly intense and fruity, offering notes of cherries and peaches and even ripe exotic fruits: mangoes, lychees and pineapple.

On the palate it is dry and well-balanced, with excellent persistence and personality. It has a faint aftertaste of bitter almonds and a characteristic tangy flavour.
