Cossetti’s ‘Vigna Vecchia’ Barbera D’Asti DOCG hails from the heart of Piedmont, Italy, a region famed for producing some of the finest Barbera wines. The Cossetti family, with a winemaking tradition dating back to 1891, meticulously cultivates old Barbera vines to craft this distinguished wine. The vineyards, characterised by their calcareous-clay soils and optimal sun exposure, yield grapes with intense concentration and complexity.

The ‘Vigna Vecchia’ presents a vivid ruby red colour with garnet reflections. The nose is immediately captivating, revealing an aromatic bouquet of red cherries, plums, and blackberries, seamlessly blended with hints of violet, tobacco, and a touch of spice. On the palate, this Barbera is both vibrant and full-bodied, exhibiting a remarkable balance between its refreshing acidity and rich fruit flavours. Ripe red fruits dominate, complemented by nuances of licorice, dark chocolate, and a subtle earthiness. The wine finishes long and smooth, with finely integrated tannins and a persistent aftertaste.
