2020 ‘Crocera’ Barbera d’Asti Superiore, Il Cascinone, Piedmont

£12.75 inc. VAT

If there’s one wine that that should be regular in anyone’s ‘everyday drinking’ wine rack then it’s this outstanding single vineyard Barbera.

The grapes come from the Crocera vineyard which is a six-hectare site on the Monferrato hills of Piemonte, where some of the region’s finest wines are produced.

This wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barriques (small casks) of which only 10-15% are new. The predominant use of older oak ensures that there is a more subtle flavouring to the wine and that the juicy, ripe flavours of the Barbera grape are dominant. All this evolves into the most magnificent and rewarding glass of red.

The aroma immediately entices you with gorgeous flavours of black cherry, ripe damson and soft spice. Rich, generous and juicy on the palate with more flavours of cherry, plum and a little hint of mocha. This has an intensity and complexity that is rare to find at its regular price but at £8.50, nigh-on impossible. Drinking beautifully right now but there’s plenty of life left in this superb effort from Il Cascinone.
