We are Fausto and Cinzia Cellario, third generation of winemakers in the village of Carrù, on the western outskirts of the Langhe hills. We believe in working only with local, indigenous Piedmontese grape varieties and we fiercely defend the local winemaking traditions both in the vineyards and in the cellar. We farm 13 hectars of vineyards (and some hazelnut trees) in three different sites covering the southern Langhe. The Dogliani plot is probably the family’s most prestigious land and we like to consider ourselves as “Dolcetto Specialits”. Our farming is organic and we just use the indigenous yeasts in all the fermentations. Sulphur is absent or added only in small quantities during the pressing or bottling (just when necessary). The wines are not fined. They are aged in big oak barrels, cement tanks or raw amphora. The main varieties we farm: Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo, Favorita, Nascetta, Grignolino.
Taste: This blend of native grapes Muscat and Arneis is a lively, snappy white with enough flavors of stone fruit, citrus, and minerality to satisfy nearly everyone—from Pinot Grigio lovers to Sauvignon Blanc die-hards.
Cellaring Potential:
Food Matching: Bring this to the dinner party with the unknown menu, as it’s a sure thing paired with most lighter fare or all by itself. The fresh acidity makes it a highly versatile party in a bottle.
Vinification: from indigenous grapes. Hand-harvested into small bins. De-stemmed, pneumatic direct press. Spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel.
