Ottavio, Cascina Tavijn 2020

€ 17,00Price

Yet another vibrant, rustic red from Nadia and the Cascina Tavijn team. This one is named after her father, Ottavio. Made from Grignolino grapes grown on young vines in sandy, silty, and limestone soils. The grapes are destemmed and gently pressed, initiating fermentation with native yeasts in stainless steel tanks. Maceration lasts for up to two months, followed by ageing in cement tanks before bottling without fining or filtering. Ottavio displays a pale red colour and offers flavours of tart cherry, blood orange, and refreshing acidity. It is a true expression of the Grignolino grape's paradoxical nature, combining light colour with firm texture. Drink like a Piedmontese, lightly chilled on a hot day as a replacement for white wine, with some salumi on the side. The wine encourages drinking.
