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.

DOLCETTO D’ALBA

Dolcetto is a wine that is considered very typical wine of Le Langhe.

Cascina Fontana Dolcetto d’Alba is a wine to enjoy relatively young, but it is also capable of ageing and improving for upwards of four or five years. Traditionally it is known as the wine for ‘tutti i giorni’ — an everyday beverage that is always present at the table of winegrowers in Le Langhe.

Dolcetto d’Alba can be enjoyed cool in summer months. It is the ideal accompaniment to salumi and antipasti as well as to simple pasta, meat dishes, and raw vegetables.

Tasting notes
