Mompirone Barbera d’Ast Superiore from Cascina Vèngore in Piemonte, Italy, is an exquisite, elegant and full-bodied red wine med from 100 % Barbera grapes. The classification Superiore indicates that this is a wine of slightly higher quality and complexity than regular Barbera wines. Mompirone has a beautiful ruby colour with thick legs clinging to the side of the glass. The rich aromas and flavours are reminiscent of red cherries, blackcurrant, cocoa, cloves and vanilla. The wine is elegant with a fresh acidity which is characteristic for Barbera. It has a creamy texture on the pallet, with smooth and ripe tannins and a long and delicious finish. Barbara is always a great and easy wine to pair with food and Mompirone goes perfectly with a wide range of dishes such as pasta with a meat based sauce, all sorts of red meats as well as game or poultry with a red wine sauce. The grapes come from an organically grown vineyard of only 1,86 hectares. The grapes are harvested by hand during the first ten days of October and after fermentation the wine is matured in 2500 liters Slavonian oak barrels for 18 months.
Cascina Vèngore is situated in the heart of the province Terrie Alfieri, between the more well-known regions Roero and Monferrato, in the small wine region Cisterna d’Asti. The family Pavore has been viticulturists since 1837, and the farm Cascina Vèngore, situated in the heart of Terrie Alfieri and only 1-hour-drive from the coast, is the family’s latest project. The 26 hectares of land of Cascina Vèngore forms a natural amphitheater of meadows, woods and vineyards. The beautiful valley has its own micro climate with milder winters and cooler summers compared to the rest of the area, which is perfect for wine growing. This specific area has been renowned for producing high-quality wine since Roman times, and in the middle of the vineyards you still find the historic Roman farmhouse of Vèngore with the original 2000-year-old marble steps leading to the house as well as the ancient natural spring called Cucheirolo, which is still in use. When Mr. and Mrs. Povero bought the land in 2012, the vineyards had been long abandoned and the land poorly managed. During the last 10 years they have worked tirelessly to restore the vineyards as well as the surrounding woods. The have planted no less than 300 oak trees to restore the woods, wildlife and biodiversity of the area. The young, visionary and passionate daughter Lucrezia Povero has now taken over the leadership of the estate and together with her uncle and a small dedicated team, they take care of the vineyards, winery and sales. The 16 hectares of vineyards are planted with the local grape varieties Barbera, Nebbiolo and Arneis and they are all organically grown with the deepest respect for nature and biodiversity. The farm is also home to 15 hens and 8 donkeys, a crucial contribution to the natural ecosystem in the vineyard. The estate received organic certification in 2019.
