This fabled wine is the traditional late harvest wine of the region and is sourced from the Cariola vineyard in the village of Piverone. Harvest occurs in late September at which point the grapes are left on racks to dry for five months before being pressed gently during the month of March following the year of harvest. The juice is then fermented in barrique and aged for an additional two years in small barrel followed by two years of bottle aging prior to release. The wine, we assure you, will age to perfection over an eternity! Approximately 2,000 half bottles are produced annually. The Caluso Passito “Cascina Cariola” is a wonderful companion to dried fruits and aromatic, flavorful cheeses and is a classic “vino da meditazione”.
The Ferrando wines were the very first wines we imported to the United States back in January 1980.Learn more
