A wonderful, quintessential light red. Light to medium-bodied in style this Barbera d’Asti displays blackberry and dark cherry aromas. The palate is ripe, rounded and supple with red fruit flavours, spice and a hint of vanilla. A red wine you could serve slightly chilled in the warmer summer months.
Story behind the wine
Our story began back in 1820, when Giuseppe Sarotto, the founder of the family, arrived in Neviglie from Barbaresco. Our family descended from him, and he was the first generation to undertake the winemaking activity, followed by his son Giovanni and then his grandson Luigi Giovanni. In the early 1940s, with the advent of the Second World War and phylloxera, the sector suffered a period of recession and business came dramatically to a standstill. Angelo succeeded his father and was determined to continue the family business, tending the vineyards on his parents’ land. Thanks to the support of his wife Maria, cultivation expanded to include new grape varieties such as Moscato, Freisa and Barbera.
