Product Details

Crocera is a perfect fresh juicy red which overdelivers on everything from seductive spicy notes to a charming chocolate and cherry combination. Outstanding example of youthful, juicy oak-aged Barbera.

The Barbera grapes are sourced from 6 ha of vines on south east and west facing slopes, on the estate of Il Cascinone in the Monferrato hills of Piemonte. While these grapes were planted in 2000, other grapes from younger vines are also included in the blend. Barbera is the most important grape in the region, producing distinctive wines. The wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barriques (2nd and 3rd use), of which 10-15% is new oak.
