2016 Brachetto d'Acqui [375 ml] (Borgo Moncalvo)

Borgo Moncalvo, Brachetto d'Acqui [375 ml], Piemonte, Italy 2015

{organic} 100% Brachetto

FRESH RASPBERRY, SWEET BUT CRISP, LIGHTLY BUBBLY

Sweet wines get a weird rap. Often derided as cloying or unserious, it's easy for a wine lover to try to hide their sweet tooth. But isn't a fresh piece of fruit from the farmer's market one of life's great little pleasures? What if you could capture that joy in something as wonderful as a bottle of wine? That's what Borgo Moncalvo does! Their solar-powered winery and 5 tiny acres of organically-farmed vines (planted in the 1940s on the side of steep, remote rocky slopes, bring us this little half-sized bundle of joy. The red fruit flavors of raspberry and cherry feel fresh and juicy, not cloying, and the faint touch of bubble adds to the zesty, refreshing mouthfeel. 

Serving Suggestion: Fresh fruit salad, chocolate-covered strawberries, a big brunch spread or make this the treat on its own.

2015 Cortese (Borgo Moncalvo)

Borgo Moncalvo, Cortese, Piemonte, Italy 2015

{organic} 100% Cortese

LEMON ZEST & GOLDEN APPLE, MINERALLY & MEDIUM BODIED, VERY CRISP

Cortese, a grape which many wine lovers associate exclusively with the small Piemontese region of Gavi, actually has a fairly wide northwestern Italian range. This example from less than 40 miles further west has many reminiscences of Gavi's classic hallmarks (vibrant acidity, zesty citrus, restrained minerality) but a significantly lower price tag than most representatives of Cortese's capital - a feature that we certainly appreciate! Borgo Moncalvo is a dynamic family farm with several generations under its belt and a forward-thinking young winemaker at the helm. Solar panels provide power to the estate.

Serving Suggestion: A tremendous companion for seafood and freshwater fare alike but also comfortable being sipped at by itself on a balmy spring evening. Herb-encrusted roast chicken breast w/ a lemon-based marinade.
