Ca'Viola Barolo Caviot
In 2002, Beppe Caviola was named “Enologist of the Year” by the Italian wine industry’s most prestigious guide, Gambero Russo, and upon pulling the cork out of this stunning expression of Nebbiolo, it is not at all hard to understand why. From a blend of various vineyard sites with an average age of 25 years, the Ca’Violo is best described as being wonderful contradiction in a glass: The seriousness and ageability of the best Barolo wines, with enough freshness and approachability to be enjoyed right now. It seduces your eyes with its ruby-red and garnet reflection, and keeps you entranced with its intense scent of violet, red fruit, and balsamic. It all culminates in a silky, complex texture and a long, long finish!
