The colour is deep ruby red with violet tones, the bouquet is aromatic, fruity and spicy, the taste is tannic, round and structured. To understand fully the philosophy behind this wine don't miss the video about Cascina Val del Prete made by Pietro Plaia.

The producer

Cascina Val del Prete or valley of the priest takes its name from the exiled Bishop of Asti who lived there in 1850. In 1977 Bartolomeo Roagna and his wife Carolina bought the farm "Val del Prete" where they had worked as sharecroppers. The first thing did was replace some grain and fruit with vines. The grapes were planted on south facing slopes in a splendid natural amphitheater. Over the years they increased the area under vine. Their sons , Mario and Luigi, have entered the family business and have taken care of the vineyards. Cascina Val del Prete continues to be well managed thanks to Mario’s commitment to great wine.
