Is a town and comune in the province of Brescia, in the Italian region Lombardia. The municipality, located on the southwest side of Lago di Garda, is bounded by other communes of Padenghe sul Garda, Manerba del Garda and Soiano del Lago. Chiaretto, the famous rosé wine of a light cherry colour, with its special perfume of fruit and flowers and its well-balanced, dry taste, owes its creation to Pompeo Molmenti, who dedicated his attention intensively to the cultivation of vines and wine on his estate. It was in 1896 that this lawyer, teacher of art history, member of parliament and senator gave life to the “Chiaretto”, a wine which brings together the particular characteristics of red and white wine with a harmonious and incomparable taste. Moniga dedicates one event a year to this exceptional wine: in June there is the “Italia in Rosa” fair. Wikipedia
