The Barbera d’Alba is a deep ruby red with the scent of red roses, cherry jam, and wild woodland fruit and delicate notes of spices and graphite. Fresh, dry and full-flavoured on the palate.
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.
