Estate: Oreste Buzio is a small family estate founded in 1860 by Agostino Buzio. It is located in the village of Vignale Monferrato, within the rolling hills of Monferrato Casalese in Piedmont, northern Italy. Agostino’s grandson Oreste, along with his wife Daniela and sons Andrea and Marco, head the estate today. Respect for the environment and organic farming has been passed down from father to son. The estate focuses on indigenous grapes such as Barbera, Grignolino and Freisa; the wines are celebrated for their delicate, pure character.
Tasting Notes: Compellingly aromatic, with raspberry, strawberry, candied violet and earth radiating with each swirl. Tart rhubarb and raspberry glide across silky tannins and good acidity. Pink peppercorn, earth, granite minerals and bitter hints comprise the dry finish. Tasty on its own, but fantastic with a wide variety of dishes, even peanut butter nutella cookies. [No additional sugar was added so the cookies were not super sweet.]
