Production

The Barbera grapes are sourced from 6 ha 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 (2nd and 3rd use), of which 10-15% is new oak.

Tasting notes

Aromas of ripe black cherry, damson and toasty spice. A rich palate with plum and sour cherry fruit, juicy acidity, and notes of dark chocolate on the finish.

Food match

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