Winemaker Notes

Intense garnet red color. On the nose, rich floral notes and ripe fruit, with nuances of orange peel, liquorice and menthol. Persistent and elegant on the palate, with rounded tannins and hints of cherries in liquor.

Store in a cool, dark place and enjoy within 15 to 20 years from the harvest.

Our wines are not filtered and are made without the use of any additional chemicals. They are literally the fruit of responsible and meticulous care in the vineyard as well as the most careful vinification that fully respects our traditions. There may be some sediment in the bottle, a process of natural evolution, but this in no ways alters the quality of the wine. We see it as a mark of its natural goodness.

Critical Acclaim

WS 93
Wine Spectator
The aromas are shy in this elegant red, which reveals rose, strawberry, cherry and tobacco with air. Offers a firm, refined structure, with subtle but detailed notes of cherry, berry and mineral on the finish. Best from 2019 through 2035.

Cascina Fontana Winery Image
We are a small family wine estate located in the Barolo hills of Le Langhe, south of Alba, in Piedmont, Northwest Italy. This is an area of rare majestic beauty, with vine-covered hills and castle-topped communities looking across to each other over steep, plunging valleys. Here, in our beautiful land dedicated to the production of wine, my family have grown grapes and produced wines for at least six generations. Today I continue to grow the traditional grapes of Le Langhe, Dolcetto, Barbera and Nebbiolo, to produce a range of classic wines that are thoroughly rooted in the traditions of my land. I learned winemaking from my grandfather Saverio and I still do many things ‘come una volta’, as in the past, as my grandfather himself would have done. I pride myself above all on making genuine wines that are natural, true expressions of nostro territorio – our land and our culture. I invite you to come to Le Langhe to taste and discover the wines of Cascina Fontana as well as our beautiful land for yourselves.”

The center of the production of the world’s most exclusive and age-worthy red wines made from Nebbiolo, the Barolo region includes five core townships: La Morra, Monforte d’Alba, Serralunga d’Alba, Castiglione Falletto and the Barolo village itself, as well as a few outlying villages. The landscape of Barolo, characterized by prominent and castle-topped hills, is full of history and romance centered on the Nebbiolo grape. Its wines, with the signature “tar and roses” aromas, have a deceptively light garnet color but full presence on the palate and plenty of tannins and acidity. In a well-made Barolo, one can expect to find complexity and good evolution with notes of, for example, strawberry, cherry, plum, leather, truffle, anise, fresh and dried herbs, tobacco and violets.

There are two predominant soil types here, which distinguish Barolo from the lesser surrounding areas. Compact and fertile Tortonian sandy marls define the vineyards farthest west and at higher elevations. Typically the Barolo wines coming from this side, from La Morra and Barolo, can be approachable relatively early on in their evolution and represent the “feminine” side of Barolo, often closer in style to Barbaresco with elegant perfume and fresh fruit.

On the eastern side of the region, Helvetian soils of compressed sandstone and chalks are less fertile, producing wines with intense body, power and structured tannins. This more “masculine” style comes from Monforte d’Alba and Serralunga d’Alba. The township of Castiglione Falletto covers a spine with both soils types.

The best Barolo wines need 10-15 years before they are ready to drink, and can further age for several decades.

Responsible for some of the most elegant and age-worthy wines in the world, Nebbiolo, named for the ubiquitous autumnal fog (called nebbia in Italian), is the star variety of northern Italy’s Piedmont region. Grown throughout the area, as well as in the neighboring Valle d’Aosta and Valtellina, it reaches its highest potential in the Piedmontese villages of Barolo, Barbaresco and Roero. Outside of Italy, growers are still very much in the experimentation stage but some success has been achieved in parts of California. Somm Secret—If you’re new to Nebbiolo, start with a charming, wallet-friendly, early-drinking Langhe Nebbiolo or Nebbiolo d'Alba.
