WE CHOSE IT BECAUSE
It is a red wine for meals but one that manages to impress and surprise
“Masèra” is a small miracle of nature and Piedmontese peasant engineering. In fact, the “masère” are nothing more than terraces able to support the hills and allow the cultivation of vines, built with stones and thanks to the manual skills of the old vine growers, which today have been declared a Unesco World Heritage Site.
For this wine Elisa and Claudia Pozzo use their old vines cultivated with typical Piedmontese grapes: Barbera, Nebbiolo, Uva rara, Freisa and Croatina. The grape skins remain in contact with the must for about 10 days during fermentation, transferring all their splendid bouquet of aromas. Maturation continues for 8-10 months in oak barrels, before aging in the bottle for a few more months.
The color is a deep ruby red.
The nose is intense, with notes of berries and cherries.
The taste is fresh and dry, mineral and the tannins are lightly noticeable.
At the table it is a companionable red: at typical holiday tables, whether with family or friends, it finds its ideal tasting time, paired with convivial dishes such as pasta with meat sauces, mixed boiled meats and polenta with stew, as well as with an excellent board of semi-mature cheeses placed in the center of the table!
INGREDIENTS AND BENEFITS
A glass of wine a day keeps the doctor away!
It is clear that wine is not harmful to our bodies, as a substance given to us by nature in the form of fruit from which man over the centuries has managed to obtain this heavenly beverage. We can guarantee that our winemakers work by following ancient methods, supported by the aid of contemporary technologies: this is why we feel confident in saying that Italian wine, the real one, is a panacea for body and mind.
The presence of polyphenols in wine (to a lesser extent in white wines and in large quantities in reds, especially when aged) provides constant protection against cellular oxidation, the main culprit of aging and cellular deterioration.
Perhaps even more obvious and important, however, are the psychological benefits that a good glass of Italian wine can give you: the lightheartedness it brings to an evening with friends, the romance it helps to create in a couple’s dinner, the passion it is able to unleash in anyone lucky enough to taste its essences.
We receive your order, prepare it and ship it in 24/36 hours.
We are aware that excellent products need excellent packaging, and at the same time we cannot risk damaging the precious Italian culinary jewels in any way.That is why our warehouse is equipped with temperature and lighting ideal for food preservation, and the most delicate ones (cheeses, cured meats and craft beers) are stored inside cold rooms. During shipping, on the other hand, each product is protected with the packaging most appropriate to its characteristics.
Cheeses and cured meats, which despite being aged require special care, travel accompanied by a special slow-release gel ice inside isothermal bags: in this way freshness is preserved until the goods arrive at your home.
For our craft beers, which are unpasteurized and therefore more sensitive to high temperatures than normal, we use a special isothermal bubble wrap, which can ensure that the accumulated cold is maintained for the shipping time while protecting the bottles from shocks.
To secure the precious bottles of Italian wine, we have equipped ourselves with special inflatable bags, designed solely for the purpose of immobilizing and protecting this product inside the box.
For jars containing a thousand Italian goodnesses, we use special protective bubble wrap liners.
