Taste two of our favorite Easter wines and save 20%!
For most Italians, the weekend of Pasqua, including Pasquetta (Easter Monday, literally “little Easter”) means a chance to gather as a family and indulge in some of the year’s most enjoyable meals. Epic family feasts require wines which can stand up to diverse dishes, such as a special homemade pasta perhaps followed by deliciously succulent roast lamb. Less austere than certain other wines from the Langhe, Barbera from both Alba and Asti is recognized as a popular classic among the people of Piedmont and beyond.
In keeping with Cascina Castlèt‘s whimsical winemaking aesthetic, Mariuccia Borio‘s Barbera d’Asti is a partial passito, hence the name Passum. Borio considers her flagship wine to be the truest representation of the company’s philosophy, whereby age-old traditions are given an unexpected and thoroughly modern twist.
One of Barbera d’Alba’s top crus, the Rocca delle Marasche vineyard is found in a prime position in Castellinaldo (Cuneo), where Antonio Deltetto strictly limits his yields thus allowing remaining grapes to over-mature. Deltetto then employs new French oak to produce a startlingly rich, international-style Barbera d’Alba. The 2004 vintage is a recipient of the Cinque Grappoli and Tre Bicchieri awards.
