Wines of Piedmont –
Gianfranco Bovio began to look after his father Alessandro’s holdings in the 1970s, renovating the old cellars and dedicating himself with passion to the making of wines grown on the estate vineyards that stretch out over 8.5 hectares.
The company philosophy is strongly embedded in tradition and terroir, from the scrupulous tending of the vineyards, through to the ageing of the wines in large oak casks.
Dogliani, where the certified organic estate is located, enjoy such a reputation for the production of high quality, cellar-worthy Dolcettos, that it was recently granted D.O.C.G. status, the first ever for Dolcetto-based wines.
Gillardi also envisioned the potential of Syrah in this cooler climate, and produces a few thousand bottles of the now-legendary Harys.
Carlo, driven by his strong attachment to the vineyards he grew up with and above all, his great desire to share the great and singular personality of this territory to the world, decided to market the wines in 2000 with the Cascina Bruciata label, honoring the history of the land which had always been a part of his family.
Today, Cascina Bruciata represents the realization of a long coming dream, but more than anything, it is a project that is passionately oriented toward the future, with pride and respect for the land, in the tradition that lives in the spirit of families like the Balbos.
