Cascina Val Del Prete - 2017 Burbero Rosato
The family behind Cascina Val Del Prete are a passionate lot. The son, Giovanni, is jovial, experimental and dedicated to continuing their families legacy towards biodynamic viticulture. Their is great attention to detail, alongside a very obvious love for the world around them. I was fortunate enough to see the vineyards, plush with biodiversity and overlooked by the grand mountains. The rosato is made from Nebbiolo and named after his father, "Burbero", which translates to "grumpy". A grumpy wine this is not, sultry, deep and built for food. Bitey, sensual and alive.
