THE WINERY –CASCINA FONTANA

Cascina Fontana is located in the heart of the Barolo wine zone in the small hamlet of Perno, near Monforte d’Alba and about 15 km from Alba. Here the Fontana family continue cultivating grapes and making wine as they have done for the past six generations.

Today winemaker Mario Fontana continues this tradition, overseeing the entire cycle of production, from the tending of the vineyards to the making of the wines, taking the greatest and most meticulous care at every stage of the process.

Mario and Luisa Fontana are the proprietors of 5 hectares (about 12.5 acres) of estate vineyards dedicated exclusively to the cultivation of the classic grape varieties of Le Langhe: dolcetto, barbera and nebbiolo. The vineyards are located in the best zones of production in the commune of Castiglione Falletto; La Morra; and Sinio .

Cascina Fontana is wholly traditional wine estate that respects and follows the culture, traditions and history of Le Langhe.

BARBERA D’ALBA

Barbera, more than any other wine, is ‘il vino del contadino’, humble yet profoundly tied to a majestic land that gives its birth, a wine that truly represents the lifeblood of the people of Le Langhe. More complex than Dolcetto, with greater body, structure, acidity and extract.

Barbera is probably the most Piedmontese of all wines.

Cascina Fontana Barbera d’Alba, produced from our barbera grapes grown within the zone of Barolo, has the capacity to age and evolve for upwards of ten years, becoming rounder, smoother and more complex with age.
