The Baffone (means big mustache!) is a blend of nascetta (a rare native Piemontese variety with excellent skins for maceration) and moscato giallo vinified dry. The must was skin contact during primary fermentation (~5 days) in stainless steel before being bottled with conserved passito must to induce secondary fermentation; Cellario makes a small amount of late harvest wine and he uses these dried grapes to kick start the bottle fermentation. No sulfur added and no disgorgement.
