Cascina Tavijn Vino Rosso
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. The wines are fermented with wild yeasts and raised in a mixture of big old botti, fibreglass and cement.
This year's Vino Rosso is Freisa from young vines planted over Asti’s soft, sandy soils. It spent two months on skins before being pressed off to fiberglass tanks. With a wonderful balance of earth and sweet red berry fruit, it's a pure and honest wine that drips with rustic charm.
