Cascina Val Del Prete Barbera D’Alba 2020

Fermented and aged in stainless steel tank, this stunning Barbera D’Alba is bright and fresh, with impressive depth and concentration.

“Val del prete”, a name with ancient origins. The story tells, in fact, that around 1850 the walls of the farmhouse were inhabited by the abbot Felice de Grèsy forced into exile. However, the first news dates back to a hundred years earlier, when the farmhouse was owned by the Countess of Cornegliano Adelaide Cristina Perez Binelli, wife of Paolo Giuseppe Giza Asinari de Grèsy. Since then the estate was handed down by inheritance until 1977, when it was bought by Bartolomeo Roagna di Priocca d’Alba, at the time a sharecropper on behalf of the de Grèsy family. Although in those times there was the phenomenon of emigration and abandonment of the countryside, Bartolomeo, together with his wife Carolina and children, believing in the potential of these lands, decided to plant his first vineyards of Barbera and Nebbiolo in the amphitheater in front of the farmhouse. allocating the production to the sale of grapes and bulk wine. He also dedicated the remaining part of the land to the cultivation of peaches, and the flat lands to arable land, from which to obtain the sustenance for the calves raised in the farm’s stable. The diligence, dedication and intuition assisted him, and over the years they allowed him to expand the property, buying other neighboring land to be used as a vineyard. So it was that, with the help of his sons, he planted the Arneis variety, a native Roero vine, which had recently returned to the fore. Only in 1995 did his son Mario, supported by his wife Maria Carla, take over the reins of the company, deciding to abandon fruit growing and breeding, devoting himself exclusively to viticulture and the production of quality wines. Shortly thereafter he chose to follow the path of natural agriculture and to bottle the entire wine production. Since 2013, the current 10 hectares of vineyards planted with Arneis, Barbera and Nebbiolo are certified organic. Time flies, and since 2010 his son Giovanni took part in the family business, bringing a fresh breath of enthusiasm to the production process.
