Vino Rosso, Cascina Tavijn 2020
Nadia Verrua’s family has been making wines in the hills of Monferrato in the province of Asti for over a century. Their ten hectares of land are farmed organically and split equally between vines bearing local grape varieties and hazelnut trees. It’s little secret that Nadia’s mum Teresa makes one of the best torta di nocciole in all of Piemonte.
This is everything we look for in a vino da tavola. This year it is made entirely of Freisa from young vines planted over Asti’s soft, sandy soils. The grapes spent two months on skins, before being pressed off to fiberglass tanks for a year of ageing. As one might expect this is a little lighter and brighter than previous vintages, with flavours of red cherry and bitter herbs framed by some neat tannins. The kind of wine one might dream of finding at a simple trattoria in Piedmont’s countryside.
