Da Capo 2012 Grignolino d'Asti DOC Login In Stock

Da Capo is the rising phoenix of Asti. Da Capo was established in 1997 by restructuring an old wine estate and building a new cellar under the vineyards surrounding the farmhouse. The idea was to produce wines different from those made to suit the international taste, wines increasingly homogenous, almost without heart. With great attention to their 25-40 year old organically farmed Barbera, Ruché, Pinot Nero and Grignolino, these artisans craft four superior cuvées each year.

Owners and winemakers Paolo Dania and Dino Riccomagno strongly believe in the "personality" of a wine. Therefore, they have decided to focus on finesse, elegance and terroir, making the most of the full potential of the vineyards of Agliano Terme, always considered to be among the best "crus" of Barbera. The vineyards are cultivated in a natural way, without fertilizer and forced growing to obtain a low yield per hectare and our work in the cellar consists in preserving what nature gives us in the harvest. They produce approximately 4-5,000 cases per year.
