Langhe Rossese Bianco

“When we talk about ROSSESE di Dolceacqua, the presence in Liguria and Southern Piedmont of Rossese white wine springs automatically to mind.”
At one time the red variety was much more well-known and widespread but it is now grown almost exclusively in the western part of the region.
A Rossese Bianco cultivated in the Cinque Terre was mentioned by Giorgio Gallesio, a Genoese diplomat with a passion for fruit trees, in his “Pomona Italiana” published in 1839, describing the techniques and difficulties encountered when cultivating this grape variety.” (cit. “Guida ai vitigni d’Italia” – Slow Food editore).

Besides being present in Liguria, the particular and rare grape variety is found in small quantities in Monforte d’Alba, where its long-standing presence is certified and where, since 2011, it has held the appellation of controlled origin (DOC) “LANGHE Rossese Bianco”, acknowledging it as a grape variety native to Piedmont.

Vinification — The grapes are hand picked and taken immediately to the cellar for vinification. After the stalks have been removed and the grapes pressed, the cold-decanted must ferments, initially in steel tanks. Later, towards the end of the fermentation process, half of the must, with its lees, is transferred to another stainless steel tank and the other half is transferred to barriques made of French oak (Allier), where it spends about eight months. During that time, regular batonnage is carried out to stir the lees back into suspension.

Barolo Le Coste

This is the first cru Barolo of Amalia Cascina in Langa, a single-vineyard wine made with a selection of grapes from the prestigious Le Coste vineyard.
The vineyard has marly-clay soils rich in lime, which, for over thirty years, have given the vines the capacity to generate a structured Barolo characterised by volume, yet smooth, warm and pleasant on the palate.

Vinification — The grapes are grown in a single vineyard and harvested by hand. Fermentation, with long maceration on skins for about 20-30 days, depending on seasonal progress, is carried out in compliance with tradition.
After maceration, this wine undergoes malo-lactic fermentation and ages in large French oak (Allier) barrels with a capacity of 2600 litres for about two and a half years. It is then bottled and left to age in the bottle before release for sale.
Appellation — Barolo D.O.C.G
Municipality — Monforte d’Alba
Grape variety — 100% Nebbiolo
Surface area — 1 ha in the “Le Coste” area of Monforte.
Colour — Garnet red tending towards orange with age.
Aroma — Complexity and great variety of aromas, with typical varietal notes. A scent of rose stands out particularly over violet in the bouquet when it is still very young.
Scents of hazelnut, thyme and brushwood characterise the nose of this Barolo, which releases scents of candied fruit, eucalyptus and truffle as it ages, accompanied by roast coffee, chocolate and liquorice.
Flavour — Great structure and volume in a warm, enveloping wine, where tannic, acid and smooth sensations come together to create a unique, persistent and delicious perception.
Yield — 6.0 tonnes/ha
Vineyards — “Le Coste” in Monforte, exposed east/southeast, average altitude 400 m above sea level, the last hills of Barolo towards Serralunga. Marly-clay soils with lots of lime, belonging to the Formation of Lequio of the Serravallian/Tortonian period. Average age of vineyards: 30 years.
Vine training system — Guyot
Plant density — 5000 vines per hectare

About us

Company details

Amalia’s wines are born in the vineyard, on the land, and are completed in the cellar, where technological innovation steps in only in a supporting role, carefully and with respect for tradition.
The newly built cellar is next to the original historical farmhouse and no detail was neglected during its construction. Designed to fully respect the surrounding landscape, created partly underground, it blends in beautifully with the view, so much so that it is almost invisible when taking in the panoramic view of the area. Its aesthetics have been enhanced by the refined design skills matured by Gigi in the construction sector.
From the functional point of view, the interior has been rationalised to perfectly fulfil the functions of a modern winery.

Within the area dedicated to winemaking, the only containers used are temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, while the barrels, barriques and tonneaux are all made of French oak.
A bright and spacious tasting room and cosy lounge are also at visitors’ disposal.

The importance in this winery of attention to beauty in every sense is also visible in the presence of important works of art from the family collection: about sixty paintings and ten or so ceramics, mostly by Italian artists. More famous names such as Bay, Scanavino, Scarpitta, Savelli, Lodola and Schifano are joined by the colony of Piedmont artists, like Brazzani, Allasia and Nespolo. One of the most elegant and refined ceramics is “cactus algido” by Gilda Brosio.
