Piercarlo Culasso Barbaresco, Faset | 2018
Young, charismatic, and determined, Martina Culasso is one to “keep an eye” on in Piedmont. The Culasso vineyards were planted by her grandfather in the 1970s, then passed onto her father, Piercarlo, whom she works with side-by-side, farming organically and crafting wines with a low-intervention, disciplined hand. Their hard work is evident in this 2018 Nebbiolo from the prestigious Faset Cru. With vines up to 55 years old, planted in fossilized marl soils, hand-selected grapes ferment in steel with frequent pump overs, producing a wild bouquet of fresh and dried cherries, rosy-red earth, and sweet herbs. A touch of new oak softens Nebbiolo’s extreme edges and makes the palate soft, over harsh. A perfect balance between elegance and power, raise a glass to a fun, new star in the winemaking!
