Cascina Castlet

Classification

DOC
Costigliole, home of Cascina Castlet is a charming town in Upper Monferrato, 14 km from both Asti & Alba. Due to the characteristics of its` soils Costigliole has the greates surface area of vineyards within the Piedmont region and it`s no surprise it produces such impessive wines . The winery has been in the hands of the Borio family for generations, and continues to flourish under the current ownership of the capable and driven Mauriuccia Borio.

Policalpo is Cascina Castlet`s most prized wine; Brilliant deep ruby in colour with slight garnet hues, the nose is intense and broad with layers of dark berry fruit including blackcurrant and blackberry jam with hints of liquorice, vanilla & tobacco combined with pleasant herbal & vegetal undertones. The palate is firm structured and elegant with warming spiced fruit flavours that blend seamlessly with the fine grained tannins & mellow oak.
