Cascina Fornace - Desaja 2018

Cascina Fornace - Desaja 2018


Region: Piemonte

Grapes: Arneis

Biodynamic Arneis from Piemonte. 

Run by the brothers Emanuele and Enrico Cauda, this small 8 ha farm, of which 3 ha are planted to vines, is situated at Santo Stefano Roero in the rugged hills to the north of Alba. Here the hillside slopes are steep, the soils are sandy, there is low summer rainfall and sunshine hours are abundant. The brothers tend their 50 – 60 year old nebbiolo and arneis vines using biodynamic practices and working the land entirely by hand. There is minimum intervention in the cellar – the wines undergo spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeasts and without temperature control, are unfined and unfiltered, and are bottled with minimal amounts of sulphur. They are pure expressions of the Roero.
