Giuseppe "Beppe" Caviola is one of the most important oenologists in Italy. He has worked as a winemaking consultant for many notable producers and in 2002, Beppe was named "Enologist of the Year" by the Italian wine industry's most important guide, Gambero Rosso.
In 1991 Beppe decided to make his own wine and located his cellar in Dogliani, a small town in Langhe in the heart of Piemonte. Ca'Viola means "little violet house" in local dialect. Since then, Ca' Viola's mission has been to offer the best expression of Piemontese wine, investing every single day in quality, from vineyard to bottle.
Barturot was the first wine to be produced in 1991, when everything started. The Barturot vineyard, of just 2.15 hectares, traces its 65-year-old roots to the land of Montelupo albese, on a southern slope at 400m ASL. The old age of the vines naturally allows a low production of grapes, furthered by thinning. Only after a long maceration is Barturot ready to spend 12 months aging in large barrels in order to enhance its great features. 15 days in temperature-controlled tanks and 14 months in big barrels.
