The Amalia Cascina in Langa is in Monforte d’Alba, one of the most interesting and historic towns in the Langhe. The winery was established in 2003 when the Boffa family acquired an early 20th century farmhouse with its surrounding vineyards of Barbera and Dolcetto.
Later on the family acquired plots in the prestigious cru of Barolo Bussia and Le Coste and a new winery was built next to the historic farmhouse. It was designed to respect the surrounding environment and is partially underground in order to blend in with landscape.
The winemaking philosophy at Cascina Amalia focuses on harvesting the best fruit possible from every vineyard at any given year, by doing scrupulous work in the vineyards.
In order to achieve this difficult and distinctive goal, Paolo Boffa relies on consultants Gianpiero Romana, an agronomist, and Piero Ballario, an enologist.
Only stainless steel, temperature-controlled vats are used for fermentation, French oak barrels, barriques and tonneau barrels are used for aging the wines.
Maria Angela, the mother, runs a small B&B with great hospitality; while Gigi and Paolo are overseeing the work in vineyards and cellar. The wines of Amalia Cascina in Langa have their roots in tradition, while using modern technological innovation.
