VINEYARD

Cascina Ghercina arises from the desire of Paolo and Guido Sartirano: to dedicate a selection of wines to the winelovers passionate for Piedmontese wines, who are constantly looking for quality and tradition.

Respect for the territory, the continuous search for excellence, the authentic passion: these are the values inherited from their fathers and grand-fathers, now combined with technologies that modernity offers.

Cascina Ghercina wines are the offspring of Piedmont and in particular Langhe, historical places suited to vines. We are in fact in Novello, on the border with the town of Barolo, and "Ghercina" is the name of the lake that dominates the center of the estate, surrounded by the vineyards.

From here everything starts, to be one day on your table, to share the emotion of tradition and the pleasure of good wine.

Wine facts

Label Notes:

Ethereal and precious, here's the Barolo D.O.C.G., a noble wine appreciated all over the world for its uniqueness and its close link with the eleven villages where the production is allowed. His notes of ripe red fruits and licorice resonate in the glass as a symphony, enveloping and warm, soft and elegant. If aged in the cellar a few more years, or if poured and left some minutes in a glass, it continues its evolution and at each sip it is a new discovery, a new emotion.
