The Fossati Cru
A unique terroir

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.

A relatively young area of land, whose soil
presents a good percentage of sand. This is why
the wines produced from grapes grown here are
distinguished by an aroma rich in floral and red
fruit notes.
