Cascina Ballarin is a family owned estate in Monforte d’Alba, Novello, Italy and they have been making wine for three generations. They produce mainly barolo’s and this featured rose, Cascina Ballarin Langhe Rosato, is exceptional in that they use barolo, dolcetto, and barbera grapes. The soils are limestone and blue marlstone which add a beautiful balance of a acidity and depth to the wine which is unique and unforgettable. The family’s passion is making wine, tending to vines, and this sense of dedication to the craft comes through in a fragrant, hint of cherry taste that lingers on the palate in this rose. The Ballarin estate is dedicated to preserving and respecting the environment and they are a sustainable vineyard. It is because this is such an outstanding wine and family that we have chosen this wine as our Cellar favorite!
This gem of a dessert has all the components that you look for in a cake– creamy, crunchy, chocolately deliciousness!
We make a hazelnut dacquoise crust, add layers of crunchy peanut butter, chocolate, currants, and cocoa nibs, and then top it off with a creamy chocolate hazelnut mousse. It’s all housemade with high-quality ingredients, and makes for a lusciously decadent treat!
