Cascina Boccaccio is a small family-run winery located in the town of Tagliolo Monferrato, in the province of Alessandria. We are located within Piedmont's Alto Monferrato, in the southeastern part of this region, not far from Genoa. Here Roberto Porciello, owner of the winery, is dedicated to creating labels that tell the story of Ovada's terroir, aided in daily operations by his wife Ileana. Cascina Boccaccio is a young business, whose history, however, has its roots in ancient times, more precisely in 1875, when Roberto's great-grandfather Celso built the foundations of the current winery. The wines of the Cascina, where obviously the lion's share is played by Dolcetto, which precisely in Ovada reaches interesting qualitative peaks, are tactile, warm and energetic, and, very importantly, "gastronomic," that is, well predisposed to hold up to any kind of pairing, even those with dishes prepared with important recipes.

Cascina Boccaccio's vineyards cover an area of about 7 hectares. The main grape variety, which is cultivated on a little less than half of the total extension of the winery, is Dolcetto, which manages to express itself at important levels here. Other white and red grape varieties, such as Pinot Bianco and Barbera, are then grown between the rows. In the vineyard, principles are followed that refer to organic farming, respecting the environment and the end consumer, trying to arrive at the harvest always with healthy and ripe bunches, able to faithfully represent the terroir of origin. This philosophy is also continued in the winery, which seeks to have man intervene as little as possible, indulging as much as possible in the path already traced by nature during the course of the vintage.

From the walls of Cascina Boccaccio come six labels each year, strongly identifying and representative of this particular area of Piedmont's Monferrato. Obviously, great space belongs to Dolcetto, declined by Roberto with no less than four references. The "Celso," a wine dedicated to the grandfather who laid the foundations of the current profitable production path, represents a romantic choice to start delving into the range created by the winery.
