ABOUT THE PRODUCER
About Poderi Cellario Il Baffone Frizzante Blanco
Poderi Cellario Il Baffone Frizzante Blanco is a blend of Nascetta (a rare native Piemontese variety with excellent skins for maceration) and Moscato Gallo vinified dry. Skin contact during primary fermentation (~5 days) in stainless steel before being bottled with conserved passito must is be used to induce secondary fermentation; Cellario makes a small amount of late harvest wine and he uses these dried grapes to kick start the bottle fermentation. No sulfur was added and no disgorgement.
About Poderi Cellario
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. The Cellario vineyard holdings cover some 30 ha between 5 different vineyard sites covering the southern Langhe, with holdings in Novello and Monforte, the Dogliani plot is arguably the family’s most prestigious land and I would consider them Dolcetto specialists. Vineyard work is organic (soon to be certified) and all the fermentation takes place with indigenous yeasts. Sulfur is only added in tiny quantities at bottling if necessary (a practice not common with a winery in this mid-size range).
