Cascina del Melo is a biodynamic winery set in the gentle hills of Piedmont, the northern Italian wine region. The Piedmont region produces both high quality red and white wines. In 2003 Giorgio Rossi Cairo bought this stunning 110 hectare estate. Only about a fifth of it is Cortese and Barbera vineyards, the rest being fields and woodland like oak, chestnut, elderflower and acacia. Cascina del Melo is now run by Caterina Rossi Cairo and her English husband Tom Dean who live on the estate with their young children.
The organic Barbera grapes are handpicked, with fermentation on their own lees with skin contact. In your glass this wine is ruby red in colour with purple hints. The nose is floral with aromas reminiscent of rose petal and geranium leaves. The mouthfeel is full, with complex red and black fruit characteristics and a pleasant acidity.
Pair with: grilled meats, roasts and medium aged cheese.
We also sell Cascina del Melo’s Gavi DOC 18’.
