Biella - Piedmont - Italy

In the foot hills of the Biellese alps above the the town of Biella, sits the old vineyards of Castello di Montecavallo. A collaboration between Andrea Manfrinato, the bio-grower/producer and his dear friend Maria Chiara Reda, who’s family built the Neo-Gothic castle in 1830, and happily has remained in the family to this day. Together they make truly interesting wines done in the most natural way, while still obtaining the classic beauty of the grape. The growing region of Coste della Sesia, while only recognized in 1996 is one that has been in existence since the Romans and written about by Pliny the Elder. Here the two friends grow (declassified) Erbaluce, Nebbiolo and Vespolina on about 4 hectares of land.

PRIMOMIGLIO

Erbaluce o' natural. Talk about hands off, working from the vineyard and not the winery....  Reminiscent of wheat beer, raisins light bits of floral and sweet spice.  Round, grippy minerals with a good amount of length.

CAJANTO 

70% Nebbiolo e Vespolina.  The nebbiolo has18 months in barique 2nd passage while the vespolina sees stainless steel.  Nose is mostly nebbiolo cherry, black pepper, with light grippy tannins.
