Grape Varieties: 100% Barbera
The name of the company, Cascina Corte, is taken from the farm-house situated at the centre of our vineyard. The remains of the house are the original structure, and it has been found situated on maps which date back to the middle of the 17th century. The house holds a lot of interest from an architectural point of view, and has been subject to a thorough restoration, in keeping with the original style
Cascina Corte is an organic farm, which we aim to use as a model for best organic production.
Tasting: Almost impenetrably dark ruby red, lively and engaging. The nose expresses all the personality of the grape variety with a complex, heady bouquet of fruit (blackberries, sour black cherries) and, even more so, spices (vanilla, pepper). On the palate the traditional acidity backs up the rich, voluminous body. The finish is long and full of character with a lovely fruity encore.
