Tax included

The Barbera d'Alba of Alessandro and Giannatale, is grown in the family cru, Bussia Dardi. The old vines with an average age of 60 years are fermented with indigenous yeasts in steel containers for 18 months. For another three months the wine is refined in the bottle.

Fantino Alessandro e Giannatale

Fantino Giannatale e Alessandro

Alessandro and Gian Natale Fantino, run the family estate in Monforte d'Alba in the historic center of town, inside a 17th-century palace. Alessandro managed the vineyards and he was cellarman in Bartolo Mascarello's winery for 20 years, from 1978 to 1997. Since 1998 he has dedicated himself to his family's estate alongside his brother full time.

The brothers farm eight hectares in the heart of the historic Bussia cru north of Monforte, one of Barolo's most famous areas for producing wines of great longevity and finesse. Fantino's holdings are concentrated exclusively in the "Dardi" section of Bussia, a hillside with perfect southern and southeastern exposure at the geographic center of Bussia.

Barolo from Bussia, one of the true icons of the appellation capable of making fans from all over the world dream, tends to have the deep color and rich fruit but the classic tannic structure of Nebbiolo from this area-Bussia Dardi-is not as hard as Barolo from the south side of Monforte or from Serralunga. This fact does not prevent Fratelli Fantino's Barolos from aging but makes them pleasantly appealing even when young. The vines planted in 1946 and 1947 are pruned in the old style and they produce grapes that would be the envy of any Barolista.

If you are a wine connoisseur, if you love the great wines of the Langhe, and more generally those wines that have a history, a land, a culture behind them... then you will certainly appreciate the wines of the Langhe of the Fantino Brothers winery.
