The rare Slarina grape is native to the Monferrato hills of eastern Piemonte and almost disappeared due to low productivity. A handful of estates, including Il Cascinone, are reviving the variety which combines the fresh, juicy character of Barbera with fine, fresh red fruit and slightly leafy notes somewhat reminiscent of Cabernet Franc.

A subtle, lifted nose of crushed red fruits and hints of wild herbs. Fresh and lively on the palate with nice purity of fruit, blackcurrant, forest fruits and sweet red cherry. Well structured with fine tannins and lightly spicy oak, fresh, delicate and sappy on the finish.
