Founded in 1913 by Luigi Minuto, great-grand-father of current owner Roberto Minuto, Cascina Luisin has always been owned and managed by the same family. Their seven hectares are spread over prime Barbaresco real estate – mostly comprising two of the region’s great crus, Asili and Rabaja. A truly artisan operation, the quality of the Luisin wines are centred on the vineyard work which is attentive and manual, whilst wine-making is simple and un-intrusive; 28 day fermentations and macerations are followed by 30 months in large Slavonian oak casks. The hallmark of these classic, thrilling Barbarescos are purity and vitality, offering tension, pretty but subtle aromas, vineyard expression and finesse. Minuto is the unsung hero of the Barbaresco DOCG.
