Barbera d'Asti DOCG "Garitta"

  • Barbera d'Asti DOCG named Garitta is made from 100% Barbera vines grown in calcareous soil of medium consistency with good water retention, under Mediterranean climate that features some continental characteristics especially in winter.

Perfection is achieved when there is nothing left to remove and not when there is nothing left to add. Gianluca Morino - Owner

Founded at the beginning of the last century, Cascina Garitina is a fourth-generation family business, whose name comes from the great-grandmother’s nickname, “Margheritina” (“Garitina” in the regional dialect).

Cascina Garitina’s vineyards extend over 26 hectares, elevating from 240 to 350 meters above sea level. They are situated in the centre of the Monferrato area, in the municipalities of Castel Boglione, Nizza Monferrato and Castelnuovo Calcea. The 70% of the planted area is devoted to Barbera grape variety cultivation.
