The history of the Ca’ Viola farm begins in Montelupo Albese, not yet famous hills where a new wind begins to blow. Beppe Caviola rents the vineyard of his dreams, and with the help of his dear friend Maurizio Anselmo they start making wine in a garage. One day Elio Altare tastes that wine and encourages Beppe to bottle it. Thus the first Caviola label came out in 1991. Beppe also manages a small plot of Barbera which he decides to vinify according to new guidelines, but here the Caviola family invents a complex in which production. In 2005 the most prestigious chapter begins: leading a vineyard of Nebbiolo from Barolo. The cru Sottocastello di Novello is the chosen one. Thus the first label of the “King of wines” enters the scene. From the hills of the wolves to Dogliani, and from here to Barolo.
The vinification takes place without the use of selected yeasts, for 15 days in temperature-controlled tanks. Aging is 14 months in large barrels, of which at least 6 months in bottle.
Intense ruby red color with violet hues. On the nose The nose is expressed with hints of red fruits such as currant and cherry, floral notes of violet and iris and hints of juniper. On the palate it is warm and decisive; the tannins are velvety and the persistence is very long.
In combination with meat risottos, also with red, stewed and grilled meats.
