Description

Old vines – planted in 1961 – on an exposed site at the top of a hill give a wonderfully fresh, aromatic wine, full of white flowers and pithy lime peel notes. There is rounded richness from a little batonage during maturation, which reduces the amount of sulphur required, and a gentle salinity emerges on the finish

  • Delivery Information

Monica says "there are just 5 producers of this grape, 3000m of rows only, their grapes were planted in 1961, they discovered them interplanted, limestone mother rock, aged 7 months in stainless steel, some lees action, low SO

And now, a breath of fresh air: the wines of Monica and Elena Cassino. Just outside the Barolo region, high in the hills above Serralunga, their tiny 4.5-hectare estate produces Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo and the indigenous Rossese Bianco. The elder sister Elena looks after the vines, while Monica, who took the unusual step of studying in Geisenheim in Germany, is responsible for the cellar. They began to work together in 2019, and have begun producing exciting, clear wines that benefit from the high altitude. They also source a Barolo from a relative in Monforte.
