A HISTORY BEGINNING IN
Driven by a desire to produce renowned wines belonging to great appellations in a uniquely beautiful landscape, in 2013 the Gussalli Beretta family purchased Fortemasso, in Castelletto, Monforte d’Alba: a 5 – hectare property planted to Nebbiolo for the production of Barolo DOCG wines, with an additional 3 hectares, meant for the production of Langhe Nebbiolo DOC and Barbera d’Alba DOC. Leveraging the excellent quality of the land acquired, a new project was born, led by expert staff, in accordance with a very specific production philosophy: high emphasis on the vineyards and limited intervention in the winemaking process, in order to preserve each grape variety’s characteristic features.
The building in which Fortemasso operates was renovated in a manner that maintains its traditional features, while creating an elegant and contemporary interior. An underground facility holds the cellar, with its winemaking and ageing rooms: the subterranean, environmentally sustainable cellar is ideal for preserving the rural landscape above ground, while its design centers around modern production processes.
