From the vineyard to the table
Cascina Baricchi, is situated in Langhe hills, in Neviglie and is faced on the Tinella valley, not far from Barbaresco, in province of Cuneo.
In 1979 Giovanni Simonetta, knew this corner of Piedmont and he fell in love with the air that you breathe here and decided buying the farmstead.
He finally realized his dream: a house in the country, where to spend quiet moments with his family and in which produce “his proper wine”.
After a decade he started to produce and market the first bottles with “Cascina Baricchi” trademark.
They cultivate only autochthonous Piedmont vine, for the traditional Barbaresco, Nebbiolo, Barbera d’Alba e Dolcetto d’Alba, while with non autochthonous vine, we produce: “Brigante in Fuga” (Pinot black), “Sharà” (Syrah) and “Bricco dei Bugiardi” (Merlot).
For the lovers of champagne-type wine, they also produce two traditional sparkling wines “classic method” and a Rosè, “Visage de canailles” from Nebbiolo from Barbaresco grapes and a “Blanc de noir”, Et Voilà”, made wit black pinot grapes.
The company is advertised for his sweet wines: Guardo, a late vintage of White Muscat grapes, attacked from botrytis and “Solenne”, noble essence of a completely Italian Ice Wine, that we obtain from White Muscat grape, reaped in cold winter nights, when the temperatures go down – 7°C.
Are you curious?
Pinot noir is almost certainly a very ancient variety that may be only one or two generations removed from wild, Vitis sylvestris, vines. Its origins are nevertheless unclear: In De re rustica, Columella describes a grape variety similar to Pinot noir in Burgundy during the 1st century AD, however, vines have grown wild as far north as Belgium in the days before phylloxera, and it is possible that Pinot represents a direct domestication of (hermaphrodite-flowered) Vitis sylvestris.
Ferdinand Regner has argued that Pinot noir is a cross between Pinot meunier (Schwarzriesling) and Traminer, but this claim has since been refuted. In fact Pinot meunier has been shown to be a chimerical mutation (in the epidermal cells) which makes the shoot tips and leaves prominently hairy-white and the vine a little smaller and early ripening. Thus Pinot meunier is a chimera with two tissue layers of different genetic makeup, both of which contain a mutation making them non-identical to, and mutations of, Pinot noir (as well as of any of the other colour forms of Pinot). As such, Pinot meunier cannot be a parent of Pinot noir, and, indeed, it seems likely that chimerical mutations which can generate Pinot gris from other Pinots (principally blanc or noir) may in turn be the genetic pathway for the emergence of Pinot Meunier.
