Standing ovation for the most genuinely Piedmontese wine of all: Dolcetto. Ca del Baio's is a naked and raw Dolcetto, simple and fragrant. Only steel, from fermentation to aging, to preserve and fully respect the characteristics of this vine. The grapes come from 60-year-old vines, mature vines that give this wine a perfect structure, characterized by intense notes of red fruit and berries. This peasant wine has always been suitable for any occasion and for an every day consumption. From the typical "merenda sinoira" in the countryside, to an aperitif with friends. A wine in full Braja style, that we loved paired with our pasta with the Braja tomato sauce, of course.
Even before the wine, what has kidnapped us from Ca del Baio were the people: Paola, Valentina and Federica, the three Grasso sisters who, following in the footsteps of their father Giuliano and mother Luciana, carry on the family cellar, producing wine from four generations between the municipalities of Barbaresco and Treiso. A sustainable, careful approach and meticulous viticulture. A family business as is usual in this area, in which the protagonists kidnap for their kindness, integrity and hospitality. The memory of lunch after the visit to the cellar with that "battuta al coltello" prepared in front of our eyes, observing the authenticity of each gesture, breathing the rites of sacred hospitality was only a prelude to the beauty of the wines drunk: true, direct, indelible.
