Cassine in the Alto Monferrato Acquese area is situated on the left side of the Bormida valley; part of it is on flatland and part is on the overlying hillside which is where the ancient part of the town is to be found. The territory is characterised by hillsides planted with vineyards for the production of the moscato d'Asti wine which is the principle agricultural activity of the area's economy. The local winery cooperative also produces Barbera and Freisa wines as well as grappa.
Thanks to the presence of the Abbey of San Francesco complex dating from the twelve hundreds, this can be defined as one of the most charming towns of the Acquese area. The most notable building is the Church of San Francesco (12th century) which is a refined example of Romanesque- Gothic Art. Not to be overlooked are also the adjacent ex Monastery and the Church of San Giacomo.
The Cassine also preserves a number of fine old houses which date back to the 15th and 16th centuries, and the fifteenth century Casaforte of the Counts Zoppi (previously belonging to the Sforza family). Dating back to the 17th century and in Baroque style are the Parish church of Santa Caterina and the Church of San Lorenzo.
