Since 1891, our family has continued to produce quality wines. We are closely connected with the history of the terroir that we live in, and we have always followed our traditions.
This section lists some of the awards and accolades that Cossetti wines have been honoured with, as found in key trade publications.
The San Colombano farm is at the heart of the attention and care that the Cossetti family gives to the quality of its grapes. The vineyards are located in Castelnuovo Belbo. They are more than 30 years old on average, with low production yields that result in excellent grape characteristics.
The predominant variety is the Barbera, with smaller vineyards of Chardonnay, Cortese and Dolcetto. Exposure ranges from south to southeast, with clayey terrain of medium texture and some iron and magnesium content.
The area has been known historically as one of the most ideal areas to produce the best Barbera d'Asti, in the highly esteemed Nizza sub-area that represents the pinnacle of quality of this wine, through strict production regulations that call for long ageing in barrels and bottles after careful selection of harvest.
The other grapes that are used to create wines under the Cossetti label come from the greatly esteemed crus, in vineyards planted in the most favourable positions and terrain in Asti and in the best wine-producing areas in Piedmont: Langhe, Roero and Gavi.
