La Casaccia Poggeto Grignolino del Monferrato Casalese DOC 2021
Viticulture: Certified Organic
Soil type: Limestone/Chalk
Grapes: 100% Grignolino
Method of fermentation: Stainless steel with ambient yeast
Poggeto is the top of the hill owned by Giovanni Rava and his wife Elena. It is quite close to their cellar in the village of Cella Monte, in the northern Monferrato. The vines are at high elevation (450m above sea level) and grow in limestone rich, brittle and porous soils.
Mineral character, great drainage, low soil fertility and cool temps play to the strengths of thin-skinned, seedy Grignolino. The wine is fermented and aged in stainless steel at cool temperatures in the 18th century cellar under their home, resulting in a wine that is distinctly bright, aromatic, and thirst-quenching.
Poggeto is filled with the spirit of deep joy and generosity of the family delivered with impeccable craftsmanship led by their intention to create a spherical balance throughout the entire wine.
