TERRITORY OF ORIGIN
We are in Neive, in the Langhe, a unique area for Italian wine production. The presence of valleys and hills at different altitudes, as well as the different exposures and winds, create an incredible variety of different microclimates. As a result, very particular conditions are generated which allow the grape to be expressed in various expressions. The Dogliani area has the coolest climate, being close to the Alps, and characterized by narrow and high hill ridges facing the cold Cuneo plain. The Barolo area has intermediate temperatures, being positioned in a particular area protected from the winds but influenced both by the alpine currents and by the rising hot and humid air from the Tanaro valley. The three hilly ridges that make up the area determine a heterogeneity of landscapes and, consequently, microclimates.
The Barbaresco area tends to be more homogeneous, with milder temperatures and less abundant rainfall. The landscape characterized by narrow valleys generates greater windiness than the two previous areas. The soils are different from each other and can be either calcareous-marly or clayey, sandy or gravelly, this variability also constitutes the poetry of the Langhe. The main cultivated vines are: nebbiolo , barbera , sweetie , arneis , freisa And favorite , and then there are the internationals like chardonnay , cabernet sauvignon merlot and sauvignon blanc .
Secondino Barbero created Cascina Fonda in 1963 in Neive, in the Langhe, thanks to his experience in the wine sector and stimulated by a great passion for wine. The Barbero family, represented today by Massimo and Marco, has decided to focus almost exclusively on one variety in particular, the Moscato , without giving up typical cultivars of the area such as nebbiolo , codpiece , sweet and arneis .
The "sweet passion" passed on to his children by Secondino has allowed Cascina Fonda to become a company capable of best expressing the potential of Moscato, thanks to a modern cellar and the adoption of winemaking techniques suitable for the valorisation of this complex grape.
The limited number of treatments, the consistency and meticulousness in the work in the vineyard, allow us to bring bunches to the cellar that reflect the aromas and characteristics of a unique land. The range of wines produced is mainly based on labels produced from Moscato grapes, among which we find the Moscato d'Asti DOCG “Bel Piano”, the Asti Spumante DOCG “Bel Piasì” and the Asti Metodo Classico Dolce DOCG “Driveri”, this The latest product matures on the yeasts for 60 months.
