Every WINE tells a story

“If it be true that good wine needs no bush, 'tis true that a good play needs no epilogue. ”

William Shakespeare (1564 – 1623)

Birba

Unique experience of wine tasting.
Red grapes leave the colour of their skins to embrace a wonderful straw yellow with scent of summer fruits like peach and fresh flowers.
In traditional local culture, the name Birba is given to someone who is a rebel with an original personality.
The purple headscarf of the woman represents the original soul of this white wine made of red grapes..

Duca

Our youngest invention, born in 2015.
This wine, made of three types of grapes, presents a youthful aspect, like the woman on the label, always preserving its richness.
The powerful structure of Barbera is well-balanced thanks to the fruity aroma of Cortese grapes, combined with the great bubbles of Chardonnay.
A unique experience to enjoy three peculiar features at the same time.

Rosa

A modern wine with the perfect shade of rose.
By tasting it you will live a summer dream, rich in structure but fresh at the same time.
This wine leaves the dark purple colour of its must to embrace a wonderful soft cherry-red colour like the bow on the dress of the woman on the label.
Rosa, an invented name to sum up our soul and philosophy.

Lucy

MONFERRATO DOLCETTO

Hopeful and confident.
Exhausted by the hard work of the harvest, now it’s time to rest for her.
Only who learns to know his essence will appreciate her unique sweetness, that makes Lucy different from all the others.
The safe haven, the shelter in a storm and the lighthouse in a dark night, where to find protection.
Luciana, our mama.

Bruna

BARBERA D'ASTI

Bruna is the first step of a wonderful wine: Barbera d’Asti DOCG.

BARBERA D'ASTI SUPERIORE

LaBarbero is our Barbera d’Asti DOCG Superiore barrique.

Angie

GRIGNOLINO D'ASTI

This wine as well as the woman in the portrait, has deep roots in our story. As a wine, the Grignolino, is an autochthonous wine, belonging to Piedmontese tradition, produced in small quantity in Monferrato area. On the other side, the woman on the label is our great- grandmother Angiolina, whose father began our long story as winemakers. Light red reflexes like the atercolour portrait on the label, state its very delicate bouquet enriched by notes of roses.

Fiore the Best

Fiore, the king of Piedmont’s wines. Fiorindo, our father, the only man of Famiglia Barbero symbolized by the blue jacket of the woman on the label.
The name anticipate the tasting experience: the best!
Spicy flavour and warm bouquet frame a dinner with friends at Christmas time.
Joyful moments full of happiness in front of a warm fire, wooden and chocolate scents burst all over from a glass of this meditation wine.

Dulcisinfundo

Last days of summer, the sun is still warm and a pleasant scent of ripe grapes burst in the air. Bees hunt the last flowers, while a group of children play hide-and-seek in the vineyard.
Dulcisinfundo, the harvest begins.

...... Each winery encloses the glass caskets stories

“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life”…

… someone said so.

We have the great fortune of being able to contribute day by day to realize a dream, that dream from which everything was born.

Originally a small winery born almost by chance, after decades of pure sale of grapes and thirty years lived in continuous evolution, today Costa dei Tigli plows new seas with tenacity, determination and keeping its growth.

Continuity is important in a company, which is represented by the infinite line and every line, yes you know, it’s an infinite set of points … we daughters have decided not to interrupt this infinite, we have simply decided to stay, but often simple is not synonymous with easy
and considering it all, staying requires a lot of courage.

Today Costa dei Tigli cultivates 13 hectares of vineyards between Costigliole d’Asti and Isola d’asti. Which vineyard haf to be planted was originally chosen on the basis of the soil, position and composition of the land. We mainly produce Barbera d’Asti DOCG in its two expressions: more young, bottled in the year after the harvest and Superiore. In our cellar you will also find other typical Monferrato wines like Dolcetto, Cortese, Grignolino and Moscato.

Our lables are portraits of women, to mark the pink notes of our company and their bright colors reflect each character of us. We named each of our wines. Reading the label with the glass in your hand, you will notice so that you are enjoying Dani, Fiore, Lucy, Giulia, Bruna, Birba … ask us why and we will tell you!
