  • Other Information:Pashkà is made from a base wine that blends equal parts Aglianico and Barbera. In the spring, it is elaborated by adding unfermented must to the base wine before bottling, thereby setting the stage for the wine to re-ferment in the bottle. Like siblings il Fric and La Matta, the lees that are produced as a result of the re-fermentation purposefully remain in the bottle. In fact, viticoltori Pasquale (Pashkà in Neapolitan dialect!) and Betti recommend inverting the bottle before opening to reintegrate the lees for the full Pashà experience. Look for a palate of red fruit, spice, and herbal notes with a touch of earth. Serve *slightly* chilled alongside salumi and grilled meats.
