|Cortese Piemonte DOC
Made of Cortese grapes in a "vivace" (slightly effervescent) way, this wine is refreshing and fun. Dry and delicate but vibrant this wine has a distinctive spring flowers scents and light tropical fruits and almonds aftertaste. You can enjoy it as an aperitif or with seafood, salads and light pasta dishes.
Initially this wine was made from the slopes of Bricco Morlantino. More recently the Casalone family decided to use the Bricco Santa Maria hill instead. Just stainless steel and concrete are used to make this wine. The result is a wine that exhalts the pure flavor of Barberas; an intense nose of raspberries welcomes you. The taste is dry but refreshing with strawberries and raspberries.
|Freisa "La Bricca"
Freisa, a Piedmontese varietal, has a history tracing it back to being the grandfather of the majestic Nebbiolo. It is an "everyday wine" of the Monferrato region. Traditionally the wine has been made in "vivace" style, slightly fizzy but very dry, and at Casalone the prefer to continue this tradition. The color is a ruby red with purple hues. The wine has a distinct violet nose, a taste of red and black currants with round tannins and lively acidity. Goes well with cheeses, charcuteries, minestrone soups or by itself as an aperitif.
Mariposa is made from the Bracchetto grape. Its distinctive rose leaf color and wild roses scent is completed by a delicate but vivid taste of rose canina and raspberries. Excellent with chocolate desserts or as a refreshing appetizer wine with charcuteries.
