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 fabulous bottlings of more obscure local Piemontese varieties like Ruchè, Grignolino and Albarossa.

Really pale thing in the glass, this: an almost rosé, tomato red. And there are lovely aromas of hazelnut and ripe red fruits, both domestic and wild. I found strawberry and rosehip, along with nuances of orange peel, plus dried flowers. In the mouth, it is cool and medium weight and the fresh acidity kicks in early on, followed by those tacky-fresh Grignolino tannins that are very present but very well managed. It's a long and juicy wine and there's an airiness about it. It ends on a full and fully-structured finish. Very long and lovely wine.
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
