The Details

In a Nutshell

Crocera is a perfect fresh juicy red but also over-delivers on everything else from seductive spicy notes to a charming chocolate and cherry combination. Classic barrique-aged Barbera from 6 hectares of vines on the Il Cascinone estate.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of intense ripe damson and black cherry with a hint of spice. Rich and generous on the palate - robust and full-flavoured with intense plum and sour cherry fruit, and notes of dark chocolate - balanced by tangy, juicy acidity.

Production Notes

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, of which 10-15% is new oak.

Producer - Azienda Agricola Il Cascinone

This exceptional estate in the Monferrato hills was bought by Araldica in 1999. After 15 years of replanting, 60 hectares of the 102 have now been reclaimed and are in full production.
