Tasting notes on the wine:

"We have a bit of a unicorn with the grapes uva rara (literally, ‘rare grape’) and Croatina (for those who know and love dolcetto, this is its wild sibling). They are often blended with more superstar grapes of the region like nebbiolo or barbera, but here their deep, velvety layers come together to make a happy and fresh tapestry of gleeful, mouthwatering fruit: tart and ripe raspberry, framboise, black cherry, and hibiscus syrup all meld together seamlessly." — June Rodil

About the winemaker: 

"The Baruffaldi family has strived to maintain respect for the terroir as well as the earth in their winemaking. The winery is located in Lombardy in the Oltrepo Pavese hills at between 320 and 470 meters above sea level. The cellars are in the castle, around which there are about 18 hectares of vines and 135 hectares of meadows, forests, and orchards. Antonio and Giacomo Baruffaldi have long followed organic farming, striving to achieve healthy, natural grapes, which are harvested at the appropriate level of maturity and reflect the terroir on which they are grown." — Savio Soares Selections
