La Casaccia Barbera del Monferatto 2015

External Review by Wine Gems @ Perriello's:

Monferrato, Piedmont, ItalyWine Spectator 90 points!La Casaccia Barbera del Monferrato is a beautiful expression of the Barbera grape from the Monferrato appellation of Piedmont. La Casaccia is a family-operated, certified organic winery located in Cella Monte, Asti, Piedmont. Estate vineyards stretch over 8 Ha, concentrated in the village of Cella Monte, which stands out for its unique volcanic soil and optimal south/south-east exposure. Giovanni Rava and his wife Elena Bassignana acquired an 18th century villa named La Casaccia 20 years ago and gradually restored the main building and the cellar excavated into the local volcanic rock. The vineyard was soon converted to organic farming and is certified organic by AIAB (Associazione Italiana Agricoltura Biologica.)"A bright, juicy red, bursting with violet, cherry and peppery flavors. A little firm on the finish, yet long and refreshing. Ideal for charcuterie and pizza. Drink now through 2021. 765 cases made."-BS, Wine Spectator, 90 points! Enjoy La Casaccia Barbera del Monferrato with lasagna, veal Milanese and aged cheeses.
