UNESCO World Heritage Site
We are located in La Morra, in the heart of the Langhe region, at about 500 metres
above sea level. Since 2014, the area has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Our vineyards and our winery are situated in historic Langhe crus, in the villages of
La Morra and Barolo.
The “Langa del Barolo”
The Barolo area is in the far north-west corner
of the Langhe hills, covering 3,051 hectares of land
that form the heart of production of the eponymous
Barolo is produced from the Nebbiolo grape,
after a long period of ageing in wooden barrels.
The eleven towns in the “Langa del Barolo”, in
other words the municipal areas that possess the
qualities required to grow the Nebbiolo grape are:
Barolo, Castiglione Folletto, Diano d’Alba, La
Morra, Monforte d’Alba, Novello, Serralunga
d’Alba, Roddi, Verduno, Cherasco and
The Dosio winery is located in the village of La
Morra, in the Serradenari area, about 500
metres above sea level.
The international reputation of Barolo wine stems
not only from the unique nature of the production
cycle, but also from a long historical tradition,
which, during the 19th century, won it the title of
ambassador of the Royal House of Savoy at the
courts of Europe.
The Menzione Geograﬁca Aggiuntiva (MGA) –
additional geographical mention – denotes a
circumscribed area, in a larger region, in which a
vineyard is tended. It is the equivalent of the
territorial concept known in France as “Cru”.
Most of our vineyards, like the winery itself, are
located at the heart of the Serradenari MGA, at
§an altitude of almost 500 metres, the highest
point of the entire Barolo denomination.
The position ensures the right ventilation and
temperatures for the vines, despite the rise in
temperature of recent years caused by global
The temperature range ensures a good
concentration of aromatic substances for the
correct development of the finest and most
delicate tannins, which are essential in the
production of a great Barolo.
Some of the Dosio vineyards are located in the
Fossati MGA, an important Cru closely linked to
the winery’s history: Barolo Dosio Fossati was
the first wine to bear the name, back in 1986. A
warmer area with a chalky soil. the Fossati MGA
produces a more nervous Barolo, which gradually
acquires exceptional characteristics over time.
