James Suckling 92
Lots of sweet and sour cherries with some orange-peel character. Medium to full body, medium tannins and a fresh finish. Very lively. From organically grown grapes.

A very versatile wine, pair with roasted or grilled meats, pizza or with firmer cheeses. Serve at 16 Celsius/60 Farenheit

Filmmaker Jason Baffa has been fortunate enough to travel the globe with his friends and a film-camera creating moving pictures about their love for surfing. The films, "Singlefin: yellow," "One California Day" and the newly released and award winning, "Bella Vita," (all on iTunes) embrace the inspired life of the care-free surfing sub-culture. During a trip through Italy with surfer-environmentalist, Chris Del Moro and fifth generation winemaker, Piergiorgio Castellani, Baffa's passion for good food, thirst-quenching libation and a few late-night practical jokes, inspired the local crew of surfers to nick-name him, Zio Baffa (Uncle Baffa).
Inspired by surfing, organic food, family and wine. Making "Bella Vita" was a journey of discovery for Del Moro, Castellani and Baffa. Now with the film complete, the three friends have joined together for a new adventure. It is in the spirit of Zio Baffa (that somewhat off-beat fun-loving Uncle we all may have), and our combined love of surf, travel, organic food, family and wine, that we bring to you some of our favorite things to enjoy. Call it an Italian-Californian collaboration or maybe just a modern twist on an old tradition.
