Clementina Cossetti is the fourth-generation winemaker at the 30-hectare San Colombano estate 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.

Their Barolo is from vineyards on calcareous-clay soil in La Morra commune of the famous appellation, with south-facing exposure. Yields are fewer than 6 tons per hectare. Manual harvest in mid-October when the grapes are fully ripe. The wine is aged for three years in oak barrels.

A refined wine for longevity with a garnet-red colour and orange highlights that intensify over time. Intense aromas of red and violet fruit, with a fully ample and velvety flavour and a spicy, light vanilla finish. Benchmark Barolo.
