Cascina Pajana - Ginestra

La Cascina Pajana is in the vey middle of historical crus for the production of Barolo.
Situated at a bifurcation of the Ginestra hilltop, with a South East and South West exposition, it encompasses both sides of the hill and Renzo Seghesio produces his two top Barolo crus Barolo Ginestra (South-West vineyard) and the Barolo Vigna Pajana (South-east Vineyard) using the grapes from the upper part of the estate, where the Nebbiolos are planted.
The Cascina Pajana sets itself apart in the broader landscape of the crus Ginestra for the production of structured, complex wines, together with a slightly cooler exposition.

The lower portion of the Cascina Pajana is planted with Barbera Vines.
