2012 Dolcetto (Cascina Barisel)

Cascina Barisel, Dolcetto, Piemonte, Italy 2012

{organic} 100% Dolcetto

RASPBERRY & CRANBERRY. INCREDIBLY BRIGHT, BREEZY, & FRESH

In Franco Penna's cellar, five meters beneath the calcite soils of his tiny vineyard, visitors can see the roots of his vines working their way down to a natural spring. It's visible proof of exceptional terroir, and it's certainly reflected in the wine. This is a gleaming jewel of a Dolcetto, all bright tangy fruit and clean, bracing acidity. A perfect example of the simple, exquisitely Italian pleasures of good Dolcetto.

Serving Suggestion: May we quote from Cascina Barisel's own materials? "The ideal companion for pasta and for all meals." That about sums it up.

2017 Moscato d' Asti "Canelli" (Cascina Barisel)

Cascina Barisel, Moscato d’Asti “Canelli", Piemonte, Italy 2017 (sustainable} 100% Moscato

RIPE PEACH & HONEYDEW MELON, GLORIOUSLY TINY BUBBLES, SWEET BUT SERIOUS

Franco Penna credits his parents for instilling in him a deep reverence for nature: "I work mechanically, not with chemicals." He is dedicated to using organic methods to single-handedly maintain his 5-hectare family vineyard, where the vines wend their way through calcium-rich soil to reach underground springs. Boundlessly fresh fruit is achieved through careful hand-harvesting from 50-year-old vines. A labor of love, and a wine that will make you smile with every sip. 

Serving Suggestion: A lovely match for all those salty before-dinner bites. Classic pancetta-wrapped honeydew melon, oil-cured olives, Casatica di Bufala on well-seasoned crostini.
