Capalot is a vineyard which complements Berri, both in character and age of vines. For these reasons we decided to blend the fruit from the two together to produce a classic Barolo and a Langhe Nebbiolo.
Our vineyard in the Cru Capalot, entirely planted to Nebbiolo, extends to the north-east of La Morra village, towards the hamlet of Santa Maria. The eastern exposure, old vines and soil containing sandstone rock together with sedimentary Marl ( notably silty) make Capalot a perfect foil for Berri. As a result, from 2012 until 2017 (included) we have rented a vineyard here and blended the grapes from Capalot with those of Berri.
