Paolo Veglio makes his Cascina Roccalini wines in Piemonte as naturally as possible, foregoing modern winemaking techniques in favour of the traditional methods. Only 4 of his 20 hectares of land is planted with vines, the rest is left wild or planted with fruit and nut trees to encourage biodiversity and healthy soil.

This is Paolo's Barbaresco made from the oldest vines on the estate planted in the 1960s, fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged for 18 months in old barrels. Powerful and enticing with heady aromas of violet, bergamot and minerals before a long and intense palate with more floral notes, blackberry and spice.
