"Tell me what you eat, I'll tell you who you are"
(Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin)
Simone Scaletta is a young winemaker and producer of wine in Monforte d'Alba, one of the eleven municipalities of Barolo. In Manzoni area he cultivates five hectares of vineyards with a natural approach, respectful of the earth and its fruits. Viglioni, Sarsera, Chirlet and Autin'd Madama are the four vineyards that give the name to his wines. Wines rich in personality and character, products with a natural winemaking, made of decanting at the appropriate time and a slow aging, without any filtering, which allows balanced development, authentic and natural. From a vineyard crescent-shaped on the hills of Monforte d'Alba, Barolo with rich and complex character tcombines the feminine grace of spicy aromas, floral and fruit small, the strength of the firm and decisive tannins.
Did you know that the first recipe of the Amatriciana had no tomato? The Bucatini all’Amatriciana is a typical pasta dish from Rome, and a symbol of the Italian cuisine. The original recipe comes from the city of Amatrice, a town in the central region of Lazio, not far from Rome where it was traditionally prepared with Spaghetti instead of Bucatini. With the time passing, the recipe was then incorporated in the roman cuisine which changed the shape of pasta used in the preparation. However, in the past, the recipe was a poor meal eaten by shepherds and contained no tomato sauce: pasta was served with guanciale and pecorino, as simple as you could get, but still very tasty!!
