How it's made

The Barbera grapes are sourced from almost 15 acres of vines on south east and west facing slopes, on the estate of Il Cascinone in the Monferrato hills of Piemonte. While these grapes were planted in 2000, other grapes from younger vines are also included in the blend. Barbera is the most important grape in the region, producing distinctive wines. The wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barriques, of which 10-15% is new oak.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of intense ripe damson and black cherry with a hint of spice. Ripe and generous on the palate, robust and full-flavored with intense plum and sour cherry fruit, balanced by tangy, juicy acidity.

Food Match

Duck in plum sauce… or rich beef stews, cassoulet or even belly of pork.
