This old winery in Agliano Terme is situated in Vianoce, an ancient-hamlet including a peasant house and a church. It was built during the first half of the 19th century by the Visconti Barons of Ornavasso, then, at the beginning of the 1920s it was bought by the brothers Secondo and Serafino Trinchero. Today it belongs to Renato and Ezio. Agliano Terme is one of the best areas for the production of high-quality Barbera d'Asti. Many of the oldest vineyards of this region belong to this farm; many of the vines are over fifty years (some were planted in the 1920s) with resultant smaller yields giving structure and quality to the wines. Historical note: in 1952 the first bottles of Barbera d’Asti were produced and Trinchero was given position number one in the wine-producer registry of Asti.

Red ruby with garnet tints, the nose has notes of mature red fruits, liquorice, cocoa, leather and balsamic scents. The palate is warm, smooth, rich and persistent.
