Magnificent intense purple-red colour with lovely garnet-red hues that vary according to the vintage and the period of maturation.
Wide-ranging and intense bouquet of ripe fruit and sweet spices, really pleasant and long-lasting sensations.
A dry, warm and well-balanced taste. Pleasing acidulous with highlighted tannins that become sweeter as the wine matures. A special wine, ennobled by a lengthy, intense aromatic persistence.
Cascina Castlèt has belonged to the Borio family for generations. I'm Mariuccia, inherited it from my father in 1970. Over the years I’ve had to make brave decisions, also with regard to marketing, with bottles and labels that have been seductive, sometime provocative and very individual. A touch of creativity has always gone into the names of our wines: Passum, Policalpo, Avié, Litina, Goj, Ataj and Uceline. They all have a little secret, a story, which we invite you to try and discover.
“Those who choose a bottle of Cascina Castlèt love beautiful things, good things, things that make them dream”. It’s a matter of ethics and culture. For us, ethics and culture mean respect for the environment and for those who work with it.
Pairing Suggestions: Excellent as a conversational wine. Ideal with substantial meat and game dishes. Perfect with highly mature cheese.
Maturation: Malolactic fermentation and, later, the various stages of maturation of the wine take place in prized 5-hectolitre oak barrels. The bottles are laid to rest for at least a year before being marketed. Thanks to the vine’s special attributes, this wine, if kept at the right temperature, can continue to refine for many years to come.
