It’s not often that we feature the same producer in both wine clubs during a given month, but we simply couldn’t resist after tasting these offerings from Ca’ del Baio. As I’ve said many times, Ca’ del Baio is one of the names you need to know in the Langhe region. The history of the Grasso family in Treiso goes way back to 1870. By 1921, the family began to plant vines and produce small quantities of wine. The current head of the Grasso family, Giulio, was born in 1959 and eventually took over from his father, Ernesto. He is still actively involved along with his wife, Luciana, and their three dynamic daughters, Paola, Valentina, and Federica.
“Luna d’Agosto” is 100% Chardonnay from the Langhe in Piedmont. It’s fermented and aged in stainless steel and does not undergo malolactic fermentation, all in an effort to maintain the freshness that makes the wine so delicious. In the glass you’ll find aromas of white flowers, citrus, and a hint of guava. The palate delivers lovely citrus and stone fruit with refreshing acidity, medium body, and a wonderful minerality. Though a couple years in the cellar wouldn’t hurt, this wine is meant to be drunk young, with or without food. If you do choose to pair it, go with grilled salmon and asparagus.
