Clementina Cossetti is the fourth-generation winemaker at the 30-hectare San Colombano estate in the heart of Asti, where her family has been farming for well over a century. It was in 1891 that Giovanni Cossetti first built a winery, and his son Clemente began achieving wider renown for their wines in the early years of the twentieth century. Within the current vineyards where vines are on average 30-years-old, the yields are kept low and historically Barbera has performed exceptionally. The Cossetti family prioritise this and also make awesome bottlings of more obscure native varieties like, Grignolino and Albarossa.
