Tasting Notes

What a great chance to taste a superior example of the “Croatina” varietal, seldom seen on this side of the ocean. The Cisterna d’Asti DOC is a relatively new DOC, created in 2002 to elevate and highlight the significance of this varietal separate from the more dominant Barbera d’Asti common in the region. The wines must be made from at least 80% of the Croatina varietal.

This is a dry, food friendly wine, with a backbone of fresh acid and fine tannin which make your mouth water. You’ll find fruity and savoury notes of cherry, dried blueberry, dried violets, and wet rock. The finish includes hints of subtle oak and almond.

Food Pairings

Pair this with salumi or locally inspired dishes such as egg yolk pasta (Tajarin) with a veal or rabbit ragu.

Third Party Reviews

Clean and rich cherry character with a hint of stone. Medium-bodied, fruity and fresh with a light tannin grip at the finish. Drink now. Score 90, James Suckling, Nov 2020
