    Il Giovanotto (The Young Man) is the latest limited edition release from Poderi Cellario. This foot-stomped, spontaneously fermented light red comes from hand-picked Dolcetto with a very small percentage of Brachetto for that punch of aromatics. Electric purple in the glass with notes of all the cherries (black, red, sour), blackberry, and a tart acidity that is balanced by sticky tannins. It reminds us of cranberry ocean spray, grape kool-aid, and a way more fun version of Beaujolais Nouveau. Serve with a bit of a chill on those hot summer nights.
