Cascina Castlet Barbera d'Asti Vespa 2022 75cl


Tasting Note

Barbera is now rightfully Piemonte’s second most glamorous grape afer 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. Deep and brilliant ruby colour, intense, vinous bouquet that is pleasantly fruity with undertones of freshly picked flower and fruits. Pleasantly fruity with a harmonious and balanced palate.

Producer Notes

By the producer "An estate is initially a project. And a project is a dream which gradually takes shape, first of all on paper, then on the land and finally, for us, in our wine. Our project starts from two simple ideas: respect for nature and alignment with technological progress. Simple does not, however, mean easy. There have been times when we’ve really had to push forward and others in which we’ve had to stand with our feet planted firmly on the ground; we’ve had to invest in land, technology and, above all, research. This is how we’ve created Cascina Castlèt. The grapes are grown in 31 hectares of vineyards in Costigliole d’Asti. We have concentrated on the land, our land, and on the local grape varieties: Barbera, Moscato, Uvalino and Nebbiolo, but also on Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, this last variety having been grown in Costigliole since the late 18th century, when Marquis Filippo Asinari of San Marzano planted it for the first time.

Cascina Castlèt has belonged to the Borio family for generations. I, Mariuccia, inherited it from my father in 1970. Over the years I’ve had to make brave decisions, also with regard to marketing, with bottles and labels that have been seductive, sometime provocative and very individual."
