Tasting Notes

Cascina Val del Prete (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 they did was replace some of the grain and fruit plantings with vines. The grapes are grown on south-facing slopes in a splendid natural amphitheater. Over the years they have increased the area under vine. Their sons, Mario and Luigi, have entered the family business to take care of the vineyards. Cascina Val del Prete continues to be well received thanks, in particularly, to Mario's commitment to great wine. The Barbera d'Alba, from the Carolina vineyard is south-facing with 35-year-old vines. It spends 15 months in barrique. This is a wine that goes particularly well with hearty meat dishes that help tame the tannins.
