Review:

The "meisola" is a natural ladle-shaped basin located between two hills in Brusnengo, in the Biella area. "Mesolone" is therefore the wine of the "meisola". It is a historical wine, almost archaeological, which comes from centuries-old vines of only Croatina. A clay soil with volcanic tracts, classic of upper Piedmont, where the woods gives way, in patches, to the vineyard. A stony landscape, almost lunar, with a very dry climate, verging on desert-like. A situation, in the heart of Bramaterra, which enhances the quality of the grapes and the hard work of the vineyard, concentrating the calibre and personality in a few bunches.

The man behind this rediscovery is Giuseppe Filippo Barni, who runs the family winery together with his wife with the visionary attitude of the "wine artist". Passion, love and dedication to the territory are the ingredients of this project, which is based on completely natural methods both in the vineyard and in the cellar, without gimmicks and with a clear and clean stylistic manner.

Mesolone is a wine of great intensity and consistency, a true champion of the rebirth of Croatina in a single variety. Bright ruby ​​red, the nose expresses fruity vinous aromas (cherry, red fruits), spicy and vegetal. On the palate it has good acidity, structure and has an excellent tannic component, with hints of bitter almond. Excellent as a meal wine, it goes particularly well with roasts, game and stews. From grapes grown using the “maggiorina” technique, the historical system of planting in Upper Piedmont, it stays for two years in oak barrels.
