Giovanna and Marcella Bianco are the owners of the Castello di Verduno estate in Piedmont. Over several generations, their family has amassed an enviable holding of vineyards in Barolo and Barbaresco, through both inheritance and marriage. In addition, the sisters own and operate Ca' del Re, their agriturismo business. Giovanna helps at the estate and runs the restaurant with her husband, while also pursuing her other passion: DJ'ing. Marcella operates the vineyards, the winery and helps oversee the winemaking. Castello di Verduno farm their grapes organically, maintain immaculate vineyards, cellars and winemaking facilities, and use only indigenous yeasts for fermentation.
Their Basadone is made from 100% Pelaverga, a local varietal that is not used by many producers anymore. The drawing on the label is of a poppy flower, called basadone in the local dialect. Basadone also means "little kiss", a reference to the local belief that the Pelaverga grape is an aphrodisiac. This is a lovely wine with flavors of flowers, herbs, and red fruits. Light in color and body with a silky smooth texture the Basadone displays incredible balance and freshness. Enjoy on its own or pair with grilled or roasted vegetables or white meats.
