Winery

Cascina Gilli lies in the Basso Monferrato, between Castelnuovo Don Bosco and Albugnano, on a spine of hilltops composed of greyish-white terra bianca, with uninterrupted expanses of vineyards in every direction, a terroir that has always produced wines prized for their full body and complex aromas. 


Cascina Gilli comprises a historic villa built in 18th century and 14 surrounding hectares. Gianni Vergnano, who has directed the winery estate since 1983, has poured into it his efforts and passion, with the result that Cascina Gilli stands as one of Piedmont’s most prestigious and influential wineries. 

 A large proportion of the labour over these years has gone into recovering grape varieties native to these hills, and that has substantially contributed to the respect Cascina Gilli has won for its Freisa, Barbera, Bonarda, and Malvasia di Castelnuovo Don Bosco.

Pairings

Wine pairing notes

The Malvasia di Castelnuovo Don Bosco couldn’t find a better companion among Chinese sweets. The low alcohol and its freshness of thi red wine, but overall its light effervescence, heightens the texture of this dessert. Its aromas, especially the hints of wisteria, complement and revitalize the aftertaste of the fried walnuts. The wine sweetness pleasantly contrasts the little sapid explosions of the caviar eggs scattered in the dish.
