Distributor Notes: "Nadia Verrua, la padronina of Cascina Tavijn, works in a long forgotten area in the Asti province of Piemonte. Fortunately it is a region blessed with unique varieties brimming with personality. Despite the small size of the property (approximately seven hectares including new plantations not yet in production), Nadia is quite ambitious and experimental, producing an increasingly diverse amount of wines each year in accordance to her harvests.
Vinification: One month on the skins then pressed to fiberglass vats. The wine ages on its lees for a few months before being bottled without fining or filtration and with only a gram or two of sulfur if any."
Tasting Notes: "Dark black cherry, spruce and thyme on the nose. Black cherry, blue fruit and earth on the palate. Lightly grippy with a savory, earthy finish. A gorgeous table red that would be the perfect accompaniment to a red-sauce based dish."
