HISTORY AND COMPANY
The beautiful wine adventure of Cascina Roccalini begins in 2004, when Paolo Veglio, a young and experienced winemaker, begins to make wine on his own with the help of oenologist Dante Scaglione. Today Paolo produces just over 10,000 bottles a year: a small and artisan production that is faithful to a very traditional and personal style. Paolo Veglio leads the Cascina Roccalini together with his mother Luciana and cultivates the family vineyards since he was 14 years old. Since 1993 its grapes were given to the famous producer Bruno Giacosa, who considered the grapes of the Roccalini cru among the best in the whole Barbaresco area. Paolo cultivates his plots without the use of herbicides or synthetic products, with the aim of preserving the health of the plants and the excellence of the grapes. In the small and pretty cellar of Cascina Roccalini there is a place for some steel tanks and three large oak barrels, where Barbaresco, a jewel of small production, rests. The wines of the Roccalini family faithfully reflect the territory from which they come and are characterized by a genuine and traditional mold: complex and deep, they stand out in the Langhe landscape as juicy and slender red wines, clean and mineral, with high drinkability.
