ABOUT THE PRODUCER

About Poderi Cellario Il Barrusco Frizzante Rosso

Poderi Cellario Il Barrusco Frizzante Rosso is a blend of Neretta (a super rare native Piemontese variety prized for its dark color and spicy tannins), plus the usual red suspects of the region – Barbera + Dolcetto. Its made in a lightly sparkling style, similar to a Lambrusco, and drinks along those lines. Bone dry, tart, some friendly tannins, and searing acidity that will cut through the fat of anything you want to throw at it.

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).
