Overview

Don’t call it rosé. It’s pink, but it’s clarete.

Many years ago Clarete was a common product of Ribera del Duero, not classically a rosé but certainly pink in color. Picaro Clarete is made by treading a mix of whole cluster red and white grapes bunches in tank followed by a couple days maceration then into oak vats for a slow fermentation by indigenous yeasts. After about 8-9 month in vat, the wine is transferred to neutral French and American oak barrels where it ages for 16 months before bottling.
