Cascina Borgatta, Borgatta, Piedmont, Italy
Emilio Oliveri and his wife Marisa have been working a tiny two hectare plot of land in the small commune of Tagliolo Monferrato since the 60's where they grow the native vines of Dolcetto and Barbera in silt-sandy soil. Today, the couple are in their 80's and are still going strong, with youthful stubbornness and phenomenal pride, creating some of the best wines in Piemonte.
La Borgatta is an aged and serious barbera. Rustic, complex, strikingly elegant and vibrant.
