Cascina Bruciata

The history of Cascina Bruciata is intertwined with that of different families, Abbona Family purchased it in 2016. Rio Sordo is one of the historic Crus of Barbaresco, a town located near Cuneo about 300 metres above sea level. References to Cascina Bruciata (its name, which means Burnt Farm House, is not accidental) can be found in Viticoltura ed Enologia nella Provincia di Cuneo (Viticulture and Oenology in the Province of Cuneo), a handwritten monograph written by Lorenzo Fantini in 1879. In the second half of the nineteenth century, the farm was maliciously burnt down forcing the owner to leave it to Giovanni Balbo, who worked together with his seven children to get the most out of a particularly rainy year. Balbo was the only winemaker in the area that year who successfully harvested healthy, mature grapes. At the beginning of this century, Carlo Balbo, efforts led to Cascina Bruciata acquiring a fame that still continues today. The wine producer proudly features the prestigious production area on its labels to highlight that it is synonymous with excellence. In 2015 Cascina Bruciata became a Certified Organic farm.
