Seductive spicy notes to a charming chocolate and cherry combination

Description

Aromas of ripe black cherry, damson and toasty spice. A rich palate with plum and sour cherry fruit,

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, of which
10-15% is new oak.
