From the Fossati Vineyard. This cru originated around 6 million years ago through sedimentation from the Padano sea, after which the African earth plates collided with those of the Italian peninsula. Being a relatively young plot, it has a good percentage of sand in its composition that ensures that the wines are characterized by explosive floral and red fruit notes. It can be found along the secondary road that runs from Barolo to La Morra. This vineyard measures around 3.20 hectares with a south-eastern exposure that varies from 290 to 50 meters above sea level. - Winery Note
Our estate covers about 39 hectares, 8 of which are cultivated with woods and 31 with vineyards. About 60% is cultivated with Nebbiolo, with the remainder divided between Dolcetto, Barbera and Freisa. Five of these hectares are dedicated to the cultivation of white grape varieties, two of Riesling and three of Timorasso. And we also have the immense fortune to possess five of the best Barolo cru vineyards: Liste, Cannubi, Cannubi San Lorenzo, Fossati and San Pietro delle Viole.
In all the vineyards we own, we use just organic fertilisers, with no herbicides, and carry out only eco-friendly treatments. This is why our grapes leave zero residue; clean grapes are essential to make high-quality wines. In 2016 we began the conversion that will take us to organic certification for the 2019 harvest.
