Cascina Morassino Barbaresco Morassino comes from Ovello, a vineyard located at the top of the main hill in front of Barbaresco. This is one of the most important cru in the area, with vines aged thirty years old on average, planted on calcareous marls at 300 metres above sea level. They are cultivated using respectful agriculture and the harvest is carried out manually at the optimum point of ripeness.
In the winery, the Cascina Morassino Barbaresco Morassino grapes firstly ferment and macerate in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature and then the wine ages in 25 hl wooden casks for a minimum of 18 months.
