WE CHOSE IT BECAUSE
It is an expression of the best soils and is produced from old Verdicchio biotypes
Roberto and Cristina define Barasta as a wine that is easy to recognize but difficult to describe and even more difficult to fully understand. The sandy/clay soils accommodate the old biotypes of Verdicchio di Casaleta, of which the grapes are selected and harvested by hand in several stages to seek the best possible ripeness of the clusters. Fermentation takes place in French oak barrels. This Riserva is not marketed until two years after the harvest: in fact, its aging period includes 12 months in barrique and at least 8 months in bottle.
The color is a beautiful, almost golden straw yellow.
On the nose, the breadth of its aromas goes from the spiciness of saffron to vanilla and mimosa, from quince and jujube jam to pineapple, from dried apricot to acacia honey and hydrocarbons.
The taste is sumptuous, fat, savory and with good freshness; with great structure and persistence, it leaves in the mouth sensations of honey, apricot, saffron and toasted almond.
In the kitchen it calls for first courses with important sauces (such as the typical spaghetti with Ancona’s raguse), white meats (such as rabbit in porchetta) and flavorful, aged sheep’s milk cheeses.
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 affirming 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 gives 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 in any way the precious Italian culinary jewels: for this reason our warehouse is equipped with temperature and lighting ideal for food preservation and the most delicate ones (cheeses, cold cuts 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 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.
