PIEDMONT

Amalia

A family’s passion and a dream fulfilled in the gorgeous countryside of Langhe.

This family’s adventure in the world of wine began in 2000 when Luigi Antonio and Maria Angela found the perfect place in Piedmont to spend much needed family time. In Monforte d’Alba, Cascina Amalia, a farmhouse dating to the early 1900’s with 3 ha of vineyards surrounding, was love at first sight and the Boffa’s planted roots.


Planned as a weekend retreat, this property cast a spell and soon their son Paolo left a busy life to nurture his passion for winemaking. Purchasing more vineyards of cru status, the Boffa’s began their journey of exceptional winemaking building a new cellar to ensure the excellent quality of their grapes.

 

Paolo works in an ethical manner, respecting the earth and preserving the environment as much as possible.  All the grapes are harvested manually from the vineyards at the average height of 450 meters above sea level.
 

Organic certification began in 2019 and each vintage preserves the beauty that brought the family to Amalia Cascina from the beginning.  Now with 7ha of vines, Amalia produces Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo, Barolo and 2 cru Barolo, Bussia and Le Coste di Monforte. They are also only one of five producers making a truly stunning white from the rare and native grape, Rossese Bianco.

 

We bring to you the entire Amalia range, accessible and delicious. Each wine tells a story, every glass a true representation of the terroir and a deep root in the tradition of the area. We fell in love with the wines and with Paolo, a sweet and dedicated winemaker that we couldn’t be more proud to represent.  

 

From our first sip we knew this winery was family and we are delighted to share this treasure with you.
