Brand Agostino Pavia

The ever-popular Barbera grape is grown in many regions of Italy, but it is most at home in Piedmont. Recognized as the source of the best Barbera in all of Italy, Asti is a province (as well as major city) in Piedmont, consisting of a gentle, rolling landscape with vineyards, farmland and forests alternating throughout. Friendly and approachable, Barbera produces wines in a wide range of styles, from youthful, fresh and fruity to serious, structured and age-worthy.

Casareggio takes its name from the vineyard – a sandy plot sitting at 200m. Fermentation in stainless steel is followed by a short passage in large oak casks to highlight Barbera’s frisky fruit. Cherry and raspberry show their succulent, fleshy charms, while accents of liquorish add some depth. Bouncy and bright, this juicy, joyful red offers excellent value!
