Since 1891, the Cossetti family has continued to produce quality wines.They are closely connected with the history of the terroir that they live in and have always followed traditions, which have focused on growing the best and finest selection of grapes in our vineyards and displaying their quality and character in their bottles of wine
A daily commitment for this work is laborious, yet very fulfilling. And they continue to develop upon what the family has built with passionfrom more than 120 years of history.
It is now the family's fourth generation who enthusiastically continue a history toward the future, beginning with the right balance of tradition and innovation, attention to developments in the market and above all in the tastes of those who love fine wine and its most distinguished terroirs.
The San Colombano farm is at the heart of the attention and care that the Cossetti family gives to the quality of its grapes. The vineyards are located in Castelnuovo Belbo. They are more than 30 years old on average, with low production yields that result in excellent grape characteristics.
The predominant variety is the Barbera, with smaller vineyards of Chardonnay, Cortese and Dolcetto. Exposure ranges from south to southeast, with clayey terrain of medium texture and some iron and magnesium content.
The area has been known historically as one of the most ideal areas to produce the best Barbera d'Asti, in the highly esteemed Nizza sub-area that represents the pinnacle of quality of this wine, through strict production regulations that call for long ageing in barrels and bottles after careful selection of harvest.
The other grapes that are used to create wines under the Cossetti label come from the greatly esteemed crus, in vineyards planted in the most favourable positions and terrain in Asti and in the best wine-producing areas in Piedmont: Langhe, Roero and Gavi.
