Cascina Ballarin is a family-run farm. Ever since 1928, when building work began on the house, our family has been working and running the land and cellars. Each area of de production is handled meticulously in person: in the countryside - pruning in the winter, various jobs in the summer, the grape-harvest in the autumn - and in the winery, where the wines are fermented, racked, bottled and packaged. The vineyards are mainly located in the villages of La Morra and Monforte d'Alba, with the following varietes being grown: Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto (and a very limited quantity of cabernet sauvignon). All the grapes grown on our farm are using in making our three main red wines - Barolo, Dolcetto d'Alba and Barbera d'Alba - as well as several crus. For groups of no fewer than 10 and no more than 20 people, we organize tasting of our wines served with cold cuts, cheeses and local desserts. Further information and price-list available on request.

Sweet, toasty, raw, bright in the mouth, nice weight and texture, clean, crisp, nicely fruited, dark fruit, a touch too much wood but full of sweet, earthy fruit. Has potential, may never be great but nice harmony here.
