2017 Barbera del Monferrato "Giuanìn" (Casaccia, La)

La Casaccia, Barbera del Monferrato "Giuanìn", Piemonte, Italy 2017

{organic} 100% Barbera

LUSH BLACKBERRY, SUBTLY PETILLANT, HAZELNUT & FUR

So many of our newer Italian offerings come with a story, and this is no exception. La Casaccia translated roughly to "ruined house" (we originally heard a decisively less kind translation), and Giovanni Rava does apparently go about making his wines in an atmosphere of magisterial decrepitude. There's nothing ramshackle about this beautifully complex and structured Barbera though; it's built like the proverbial brick...uh...wine cellar. Rich threads of blackberry and traditional prickle weave with that great Piemontese woodsy herbalosity to form a solid braid of intoxicating aroma and flavor.

Serving Suggestions: Flank steak sandwich with steak out of the fridge from last night. Whip up some garlic mayo and serve with red onion on a slipper-soft ciabatta. That's a proper builder's lunch.

2017 Grignolino del Monferrato Casalese "Poggeto" (Casaccia, La)

La Casaccia, "Poggeto" Grignolino del Monferrato Casalese, Piemonte, Italy 2017

{organic} 100% Grignolino

AIRY, BRIGHT RASPBERRY, LIGHT MINERALS & A HINT OF ALMOND

Grignolino is a rare Piemontese specialty that makes light-bodied, fun, slightly eccentric wines. Transparent and bright violet in color, this offering from La Cassacia is tangy and fruity with lean minerality and the characteristic tinge of almond. Light and incredibly quaffable, this is a fantastic “picnic” red. Can be served lightly chilled.

Serving Suggestions: Take it outside with a picnic blanket and a cooler. Goes great with your charcuterie and cheese all the way to your buttermilk tart.
