Azienda Agricola Cà Nova, Bogogno, Piemonte
This is a young but fantastically dedicated estate in northeastern Piemonte not far from Lago Maggiore founded in 1996 by the lovely and very passionate Giada Codecasa with able assistance from famed Oenologist Gianluca Scaglione. This cantina is destined to be a major star with their Ghemme (the traditional Nebbiolo Serioso of this zona) but is also making a delicious white from Erbaluce which is already a hit here as well as this intensely flavored Rosato di Nebbiolo.
Cà Nova Colline Novarese Nebbiolo Rosato Aurora 2009, Piemonte
If you think of rosé as thin and wishy washy, try this one on for size: gorgeous color, deep berry flavors and violet perfumes backed by good acidity, it could easily take the place of a mid level Pinot at your table in a pinch. Ten cases only, get yours before it’s gone.
