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 8.6 hectares, meant for the production of Dolcetto d’Alba DOC, 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.
