Alessandro & Gian Natale Fantino 'Cascina Dardi', Bussia, Barolo, Piedmont, Italy 2016
Two brothers, Alessandro and Gian Natale Fantino, run this family estate in Monforte d’Alba. Alessandro managed the vineyards and served as the enologist at Cantina Bartolo Mascarello for 20 years, from 1978 to 1997. Since 1998, he has dedicated himself to running his family estate alongside his brother full-time. We can't quite think of a better value Barolo out there at the moment.
