BAROLO DOCG FOSSATI 2007
Decription of wine producer
Founded in 1974, the winery is now an established reality in the panorama of world-class wines from Piedmont, with an outstanding quality production. It is located in the hills of La Morra, in the heart of the Langhe, in a wonderful position: five hundred meters above sea level, with the view sweeping over the plains of Cuneo and Turin as far as the beautiful landscape of the Alps, from the Maritimes to the Monte Rosa.
The pre-existing farmhouse, dating back to the middle of the XVIII century – as shown by the ancient beams discovered in the tasting room- has been completely renovated, new vineyards have been added to the original estate, the old vines have been replaced by new plants and the Dolcetto is now flanked by Barolo, Nebbiolo, Barbera, Langhe Rosso, Freisa and Roero Arneis. Each intervention was carried out in respect for tradition, in such a way as to create continuity between past and present.
The sparing use of technology without altering the natural processes, optimises the production process. The careful tending of the vineyards produces high quality grapes, the basic raw material needed to obtain great wines.
