2023 Poderi Cellario 'Che Casein'

$40.00

Place: Langhe - Piedmont, ITA

Variety: Blend of 11 varietals

Farming: Organic

Fausto and Cinzia Cellario are 3rd generation winemakers in the village of Carru on the western outskirts of the Langhe. The family believes in only working with local, indigenous Piemontese grape varieties and fiercely defends local winemaking traditions both in the vineyard work and the cellar practices. Vineyard work is organic (soon to be certified) and all the fermentation take place with indigenous yeasts. Sulphur is only added in tiny quantities at bottling if necessary.

Che Casein is a playful twist on the Italian phrase for "what a mess!"—aptly named for its blend of 11 Piedmont varietals, which are fermented individually, then blended and aged in steel. A dark rosé or a light red? This is largely irrelevant, as you find yourself asking for another glass of this engaging wine that balances crunchy bright fruit with savory characteristics.
