Barolo Caviot DOCG

    • Description :

      Barolo in its most classical version, where the blend of grapes comes from a variety of vineyards with different soils, exposures, and altitudes. This contributes to the varietal balance and approachability at a younger age. The grapes are sourced from different vineyards of the Barolo region, mainly from the town of Novello. The juice is fermented for 15 days in temperature-controlled tanks with a further 10-15 days of post-fermentation maceration. Aging took place in large barrels for 24 months. The name Caviot is Beppe Caviola's name in Piemontese dialect.
