STORY: It is always nice to see the determination with which some Italian winegrowing families run their winery. The siblings Romina and Alessio Tacchino are the best example.

AROMA: A concentrated scent of yellow fruits
RATING: On the palate, acacia honey and dewy white flowers combine with a gently integrated sweetness and the playfully sparkling appearance of a frizzante.
SERVING RECOMMENDATION: as an aperitif or with desserts such as Bavarian cream
It's always nice to see the determination with which some Italian winegrowing families run their winery. The siblings Romina and Alessio Tacchino are the best example. They have almost single-handedly restored the reputation of the Barbera del Monferrato in recent years and are also the only winemaker to have won the coveted Tre Bicchieri of Gambero Rosso for a Dolcetto six times in a row. So much success is no accident. Grandfather Luigi left the family a very well maintained property in the heart of Monferrato. However, in their younger years they often had to fight obstinately against outdated views. So they secretly selected the grapes at night and removed all traces of them in the vineyard. Today, Romina and Alessio have perfectly balanced their philosophy between preserving local characteristics and their constant urge to innovate. Intensive manual work in the vineyard is therefore just as natural as precise cellar work according to the latest technical standards. Their wines amaze with disarming honesty, binding, regional character and drinkable harmony. And on top of that, they come at really amazing prices. How long this will remain so is anyone's guess, after all they are steadily gaining favor with wine critics.
