    Tasting Notes: Certified organic, hand-riddled in a carved-from-stone cellar dating to the 18th century. Five years on the lees make this sparkling wine an exceptional gift. Margherita and family pamper it. I always wish there was more. The chalk soils of Cella Monte and the cooler, high elevation vineyards of Monferrato Casalese contribute to a finer style in this release. Airy and delicate. Serve with sole meunière.

    La Casaccia means “shitty –looking house” which is an overstatement, even during its recent period of construction dishevelment. Giovanni Rava and his wife and son Marcello are restoring a portion of their 17th century home to be an agriturismo. The building surrounds a courtyard and rests above a deep cellar carved into stone. The place is calming, a refuge from the (not terribly bustling) town of Cella Monte outside their front door.

    The Ravas are energetic, intelligent, easy to engage. Their property came in the family’s hands over three centuries ago. Genoese aristocracy bestowed a royal seal upon the wines of La Casaccia during that era. Centuries passed, and wine became a secondary product for the family. Eventually only scattered patches of vines were in cultivation by extended family members, and no wine was being made at La Casaccia.

    In 2000 the Ravas decided to leave their careers as organic agricultural extension agents and bring their work home. They began with vines that had been tended by aunts and nephews, eventually piecing together a 6 ½ acre estate. Two more hectares will be planted soon. The vineyard work is informed, certified-organic, the practical application of two viticulture degrees and 1,000s of hours of thought and advice. All the fruit is harvested by hand in small baskets, then carefully triaged at the cellar. Grapes are moved via gravity from ground level into the winemaking facility. The cellar itself is perfect for producing quality wine. Deep underground and naturally cool, it is a thoughtful combination of the modern equipments and ancient space. It is remarkably clean. Cool old presses and disused filtration equipment rub shoulders with temperature controlled fermentation vats, bottling, corking and labeling equipment.

    Wines labeled as "highly rated" are wines that at some point, including prior vintages, received excellent reviews and scores/points from established critics (and we do our best to report the specific vintage reviewed in the product description notes).
