Barolo DOCG

Label Barolo Beppe Caviola

A particularly good vintage for Barolo. Nebbiolo grapes, their name a reference to nebbia, the white colour present on the grape skin due to the bloom and similar to the fog seen during harvest time. The wine matures for two years in big barrels, then for one year in concrete vats. Bright, deep garnet red… Read more »


Label Rapsodia in Rosso

Montecucco Sangiovese Riserva DOCG

Label Montecucco Sangiovese Riserva

An outstanding vintage for Tuscany, with very well-balanced wines in terms of aroma, fruit and tannins. Sangiovese grapes, the name from Sanguis Jovis (Jupiter’s blood), grown in the Montecucco area in south-central Tuscany. Aged for 30 months in French oak tonneaux. Deep ruby red colour, particularly brilliant. Typical Sangiovese nose, an intense bouquet of black… Read more »
