Producer Information

​Clementina Cossetti is the fourth-generation winemaker in the heart of Asti, where her family has been farming for well over a century. ​It was in 1891 that Giovanni Cossetti first built a winery, and his son Clemente began achieving wider renown for their wines in the early years of the twentieth century.

Within the current vineyards where vines are on average 30-years-old, the yields are kept low and historically Barbera has performed exceptionally. The Cossetti family prioritise this and also make awesome bottlings of more obscure local Piemontese varieties like Ruchè, Grignolino and Albarossa.
