Estate: 3rd generation winemakers Fausto and Cinzia Cellario are passionately dedicated to preserving both grapes and winemaking traditions that are indigenous to Piemonte. Their estate is located in in the village of Carru, in the southwestern Langhe region of Piemonte. The 30 hectares of vineyards are planted with only native Piemonte grapes. They are renowned for their Dolcetto wines.
Philosophy: “Our aim is to make a simple and genuine wine.”
Winemaking: Farming is organic [soon to be certified]. They are certified “environment friendly cultivation”. Spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeast with 5 days skin maceration, aged in amphora for 6-8 months. “Bottled with minimal sulphur (~10ppm) and without filtering or fining.”
Tasting Notes: Light gold in colour with aromas of lemon, hibiscus, pomegranate and candied flowers. Racy acidity gleams thru baked lemon tart, a drizzle of honey and a trace of candied ginger. Lemon, citrus zest and clean minerality linger between each snappy sip.
