Details of wine
Fossati is an Additional Geographic Mention (MGA*), equivalent of the French term "Cru". [*MGA are officially delimited production areas within the Barolo DOCG Appellation and underline the strong link of the wine with the territory]. The blue marls and high elevation of the Fossati cru vineyard help concentrate the flavours of some of Dosio's oldest Nebbiolo. This vineyard is the true witness of the modern history of Barolo: the vines were planted between 50 and 40 years ago. Only the best seleted grapes are used for the Riserva, and it is not happening every year.

Established in 1974 on the site of an old farmhouse dating back to the middle of the 18th century, over the years the winery has been completely restructured. The 11 hectares of vineyards located between La Morra and Barolo guarantee production of an impressively high quality. Just outside the hamlet of La Morra in the Serradenari region was an old farmhouse dating back to the first half of the 18th century. The large typically rural building was in a delightful position, favoured by the winds and open to the Maritime Alps. At a height of five hundred metres above sea level, it offered a view stretching across the plains of Cuneo and Turin to the splendid backdrop of the Alps, from the Maritime range to the Monte Rosa massif. The surrounding hills seemed to be the ideal site for a vineyard, and it was this intuition combined with a passion for winemaking that led, in 1974, to the conversion of the farmhouse into a winery, which soon established a place in the Piedmontese wine community as an internationally acknowledged producer of outstanding quality. 2010 was another important year: the founders sold the winery to new owners who undertook a carefully thought-out restructuring that transformed the estate. While the locations historic values were left intact, new areas were created for the presentation and tasting of the wines, enhancing the winerys splendid position in the vineyards, with views sweeping across to Monte Viso. Quality and tradition continue to be core production values, but special attention is paid to the environment through use of latest-generation growing and production methods to minimise environmental impact. Parsimonious use of technology optimises the production process without altering the rhythms of nature. Work in the vineyard is based on cutting-edge principles inspired at all times by respect for the environment, to produce quality grapes, the raw material for great wines.
