2017 Moscato d' Asti "Canelli" (Cascina Barisel)
Cascina Barisel, Moscato d’Asti “Canelli", Piemonte, Italy 2014 (sustainable} 100% MoscatoRIPE PEACH & HONEYDEW MELON, GLORIOUSLY TINY BUBBLES, SWEET BUT SERIOUS Franco Penna credits his parents for instilling in him a deep reverence for nature: "I work mechanically, not with chemicals." He is dedicated to using organic methods to single-handedly maintain his 5-hectare family vineyard, where the vines wend their way through calcium-rich soil to reach underground springs. Boundlessly fresh fruit is achieved through careful hand-harvesting from 50-year-old vines. A labor of love, and a wine that will make you smile with every sip. Serving Suggestion: A lovely match for all those salty before-dinner bites. Classic pancetta-wrapped honeydew melon, oil-cured olives, Casatica di Bufala on well-seasoned crostini.
