Amalia Cascina in Langa is in Monforte d’Alba (Cuneo-Piedmont), one of the most interesting and historic towns in the Langhe.
It was created in 2003 when the Boffa family, seduced by the serenity of the area, acquired an early 20th century farmhouse and its surrounding vineyards that produced the typical wines of the zone: Dolcetto and Barbera.
Additional vineyards were then acquired in the prestigious cru of Barolo Bussia and Le Coste in Monforte.
This version of Barolo is produced from a selection of grapes from the prestigious Fantini vineyard in the Bussia area. The vineyard Fantini lies at an elevation higher than the others belonging to the same cru and on a soil characterized by sandstones of Diano belonging to the Tortonian stage with high percentage of sand
The Rossese Bianco grape varieties were once widespread in the regions of Liguria and Piedmont but they slowly began to disappear. A small quantity remains in Piemonte in the Langhe district, where its presence has been certified for many years on the list of authorized grapes in the national registry of wine grape varieties
