    Tenuta Casali "Cavaliere Bianco" Trebbiano '19

    Emilia Romagna

    Tenuta Casali "Cavaliere Bianco" Trebbiano '19

    Italian wines have a huge place in the heart of wine lovers here in the United States. We of course love Italian food, we love to travel there, and we love the fact that there is seemingly something new to discover about Italy all the time given its vast array of varietals, regions and styles.

    Tenuta Casali is a small, family run winery located in Mercato Saraceno within the Romagna DOC. The Savio valley that Tenuta Casali lies within doesn't have extensive swaths of arable land. The Casali vineyards climb up from the river, headed into the hills, all being surrounded by ancient forests on either side. You may recognize their name from some of the fabulous Sangiovese and even sparkling Villa Zappi wines we have featured in clubs before.

    Named after the vineyard in which it was planted, Cavaliere Bianco is Trebbiano Romagnolo from viti vecchie, or old vines, of 35 years old. It is somewhat unusual to find Trebbiano Emilia Romagna, however like many other areas of Italy, the Trebbiano planted here has evolved into its own distinctive phenotype. Trebbiano was first mentioned as early as the 14th century, and the name means “country or house wine”, which lends itself well to this variety that has created a home for itself in many countries and homes.

    Pure and herbal. Bradford pear with spring time herbs like verbena and mint. Has a fuller texture that would lend itself well to Burrata with green vegetables, but is also crisp enough to enjoy with as an aperitif. Even just an hour open really allows this wine to explode on the palate and become dangerously drinkable, don’t miss this one!
