The story of Cascina delle Rose began right after WWII – with Giovanna's grandparents, Beatrice and Ferdinando Rizzolio. The two fell in love with the property – struck by it’s panoramic hills against the backdrop of the Italian Alps. In 1974, Giovanna took over to give continuity to her grandparents’ farm. Aided by her husband Italo and their young sons Davide and Riccardo, they tend the 3 hectares of vines as sympathetically and naturally as possible.

In 1992, a close family friend was struck by an unusual interaction between Patata (their dog), Mimì (their cat) and a swallow at play during a visit. This inspired their logo and has appeared on every bottle since.

The 2019 Cascina delle Rose 'Rio Sordo' Barbaresco is an absolute stunner. Exhibiting the hallmark elegance, finesse and structure for which the region is renowned, the wine is complex, bright and balanced with fresh acidity. Each sip uncovers layers of flavors with crushed red cherries, blackberries, violets, and a touch of spice.
