Casa di Baal is located in a quiet corner of the Parco Regionale dei Piacentini, 30 kilometers from the Amalfi Coast and about the same distance from the Avellino. The influence from both the mountains behind them (Avellino) and the coast in front lead to supremely ventilated vines and olive trees, making organic viticulture an easier task than it otherwise would be. The Salerno family is known primarily for their olive oil production, though the current generation (Annibale's children) are responsible for bringing wine to the fore in recent years. They offer a full range of Mediterranean-tinged fiano-dominant whites and aglianico-dominant reds. This is their house wine, with roughly 70% fiano blended with 20% moscato and 10% falanghina. While the moscato and falanghina certainly make their voices heard, the blend is a more complete wine because of fiano's gravity and mineral depth. A short time on the skins (4 days) lends some of the stone fruit flavors you might expect from an orange wine, though we'd firmly place it in the white wine category. Lovely with seafood and fresh pecorino and semi-soft cheeses, this ray of sunshine will help prolong the later daylight hours we covet this time of year.
