Cantina Casanova di Massimo Penna


Cascina Casanova’s story is that of a father, Romano, who left his brothers and the family winery to create his own winery for his unborn son.
It was 1966 and the only work he did was vinification of Dolcetto for local clients. Three years later the first Barbera and Nebbiolo vine stocks celebrated Massimo’s birth. Under his guidance, the estate reached 20 ha of terrain covered by vineyards, and he took a big step: the production of Barolo and Barbaresco, which here are left to ferment spontaneously. For now, Casanova is one of the few wineries which makes Alba DOC, an extremely recent appellation, a blend of Nebbiolo and Barbera.


Located in the administrative division of Alba, Madonna di Como, Cascina Casanova extends its top-end vines to La Morra, cru of Barolo, and uses low-impact cultivation techniques.


Massimo Penna has been the owner since 1996 and personally supervises all operations in the vineyard and in the winery, with the aid of agronomist Vittorio Aimasso.


The company is currently going through a transformation; tours are only given for small groups, which are welcomed at the tasting room by reservation.
