Winery: Located in Lombardy, northern Italy, Cantina di Casteggio is a cooperative that was established in 1907 by a 100 grape-growers. Their goal was to create a consolidated winemaking center that could represent the entire group of growers. In 2008, they merged with another cooperative, Cantina di Broni, which added 85 more growers and 25 additional acres of vines, therefore increasing production capabilities.
Winemaking: Grapes were sourced from 15+ year old vines growing in calcareous and clay soils. Aged in stainless steel tanks.
Tasting Notes: Red-violet in colour with aromas of stewed fruit and a trace of funk. Super fruity with concentrated red cherry, raspberry, red currant, plum and blackberry framed by food friendly acidity and silky tannins. Black cherry lingers between each sip. Friendly and versatile at the table.
