Deep and brilliant ruby colour, intense, vinous bouquet that is pleasantly fruity with undertones of freshly picked flower and fruits.  Harmonious and balanced palate.

Barbera is now rightfully Piemonte’s second most glamorous grape after rising from being historically poorly regarded. Cascina Castlet carefully select the best grapes and vinify them to extract the best of Barbera’s flavour and tannins. Pleasantly fruity with a harmonious and balanced palate.

Cascina Castlèt has belonged to the Borio family for generations; Mariuccia, the current owner, inherited it from her father in 1970. Mariuccia focuses on her terroir and the local varieties.

The vineyards of the estate are spread over 31 hectares, and are all located in Costigliole d’Asti. The clusters of Barbera were hand-harvested and unveil a rather aromatic wine with a crunchy fruitiness. The wine evokes blackberry and cherry on a delicately floral background. Balanced and delectable, there is even a subtle note of minerality.

Food Match: A wine that will pair perfectly with white and red grilled meats, salami and young cheeses.

Very nice blueberry and blackberry character with some spicy orange. Medium body. Fruity and tart. Drink now.
