Cascina BordinoBarbaresco Docg Riserva

The grapes for the production of Barbaresco Riserva DOCG Cascina Bordino are harvested in the homonymous plots of property located on the eastern side of the municipality of Treiso. These are among the vineyards with the best exposure on the whole hill, characterised by a steep slope and sandy soil with silty grey marly inserts making for a lean, compact soil.

The Cascina Bordino vineyards have a great vocation for quality wine-making, producing Nebbiolo grapes appropriate for long ageing on the skins. The result is a wine that stands out for its aromatic intensity, elegance and complexity, a Barbaresco that encloses and expresses the company’s long history and passion for great Nebbiolo wines.
