ZIPPY RASPBERRIES, TONS OF FUN, ELECTRIC!

In 2010, after years of working in larger wineries, Chiara Penati and her husband purchased a tiny, 1.5 hectare vineyard in the hills of Tortona, a little known pocket of the Italian Piedmont. They farm their land organically and make their wine naturally – and only about 2,000 cases a year of it. This Barbera-based field blend, which also includes Dolcetto and several other local red grapes, is fantastically fresh with an exciting energy almost reminiscent of Lambrusco – minus the bubbles.

Serving Suggestion: Porchetta – classic Italian sandwich – slow roasted pork on ciabatta roll w/ peppers & greens. Wood-fired Neopolitan pizza w/ San Marzano tomatoes & Buffalo Mozzarella.
