The Minuto family, of which Cascina Luisin’s current proprietor Roberto Minuto is the eighth generation, have been producing and selling their own wines since the 1860s, when they would lug demijohns up to the market in Turin via oxcart. Under the guidance of Luigi Minuto, the family began estate-bottling in 1913, becoming one of the two first estates in the zone to do so, and when brothers Mario and Lorenzo (Roberto’s grandfather) split their holdings in 1952, Lorenzo retained the original winery, which sits in the middle of the renowned Rabajà cru in Barbaresco. Cascina Luisin produces nervy, expressive, highly traditional wines from some of Barbaresco’s greatest sites, releasing only when Roberto and his father deem the wines ready.


From a small parcel in the village of San Rocco Seno d’Elvio in Alba, Cascina Luisin produces a Langhe Nebbiolo which epitomizes their house style of finesse-inflected structured traditionalism. Fermented naturally in concrete and aged one year in large Stockinger casks, the Maggiur is pretty yet sternly mineral, with gently toothsome tannins and a bristling sense of energy underpinning its bright red fruits. All wrapped up in a long, energetic, finish.
