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 organically farmed vineyards are planted with only native Piemonte grapes and spread across 5 different zones, including Novello, Monforte and Dogliani. They are renowned for their Dolcetto wines.
Philosophy: “Our aim is to make a simple and genuine wine.”
Winemaking: Spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts, 5 days skin maceration. “Aged in amphora for 6 to 8 months until bottling. Bottled with minimal sulphur (~10ppm) and without filtering or fining.”
Tasting Notes: Foggy orange in colour, with aromas of orange creamsicle, jasmine and lemon custard. Flavours echo the aromas; orange creamsicle, lemon tart, apricot, white flowers and crushed rock minerality glossed by citrus acidity. Candied ginger and citrus zest linger on the zippy finish.
Blend of Nascetta, Arneis, Incrocio Manzoni
