Cascina Fontana Castiglione Falletto Barolo is a barrel-aged red wine made by Cascina Fontana with the Nebbiolo native variety in the DOCG Barolo, in Piedmont (Italy).
Cascina Fontana is a small family winery located in the prestigious hills of Barolo (Piedmont). A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Fontana family has been cultivating and vinifying here for 6 generations. This exceptional legacy continues today with Mario Fontana, who produces classic wines with the pure expression of the land.
Starting from the premise that people do not rule nature, and can instead work with it and direct its forces, Cascina Fontana Castiglione Falletto Barolo is made through responsible viticulture. The strains are planted in the gentle Langhe hills with grey and white marl soils and with ancient marine sediments that are very rich in minerals and trace elements. The harvest is carried out manually when the grapes are very ripe.
Cascina Fontana Castiglione Falletto Barolo is made through respectful winemaking. Firstly, it goes through a long maceration with skins and then ferments with native yeasts. Finally, it ages for a long time in Slavic oak and cement barrels. The wine is bottled without being filtered, clarified or adding sulphur.
The Cascina Fontana Castiglione Falletto Barolo wine was created as a tribute to the family and especially to Mario’s grandfather. An authentic Barolo pleasure for those who love this wine region.
