ForteMasso winery | Castelletto Cru | Barolo DOCG

View from the Castelletto cru vineyard, ForteMasso winery, Monforte d'Alba, Barolo

ForteMasso is located on the eastern side of Monforte d’Alba, facing Serralunga. The soils belong to the Lequio formation, the oldest in the Barolo area, rich in sand and calcium carbonate. The Castelletto cru is known for some of the most powerful, austere and long-aging Barolos. The Gussalli Beretta family acquired and modernised the winery’s building and equipment, and hired a high-profile team. This helped ForteMasso to win some of the most prestigious awards in the industry.
