Casavecchia: the greatness of Langhe in Diano d'Alba, Barbera, Nebbiolo and Barolo wines
Perugia, Italy
Wednesday, March 28th, 2018
The evening dedicated to the wines of Casavecchia winery of Diano d'Alba has been the chance to fully understand the territory of Langhe and, in particular, the expression of Dolcetto di Diano d'Alba and the characteristics of Barolo made in Castiglione Falletto. To the event took part dr. Carlo Casavecchia - renowned wine maker who, besides the family winery, has a remarkable and long career in many and prestigious wine areas in Italy and abroad - and his daughter Elisa who, together with her mother Carletta, take cares of the commercial aspects. The winery is run by brothers Marco and Luca Casavecchia - respectively agronomist and wine maker - with the help of the father Sergio and his long experience. The evening started with the wines taking their name from the place where it cantina Casavecchia has its headquarter: Diano d’Alba Söri Bruni 2016 and Diano d’Alba Söri Richin 2015, two distinct expressions of Dolcetto grape, both aged in cement tanks. The two wines allowed to understand how time and vineyard position contribute to the definition of the character and personality of Dolcetto: Söri Bruni is decidedly more immediate with lively fruit sensations; Söri Richin clearly having a fuller body, a stronger astringency, intense and complex aromas. It is then the turn of Barbera d’Alba Superiore San Quirico 2014, aged in cask, in which can be clearly perceived the character of the variety and the territory of Alba: well perceptible crispness as well as a good body, a very pleasing wine having a good versatility at the table. The second part of the event has been entirely dedicated to Nebbiolo - the famous red grape protagonist in many wines of Langhe and Piedmont - starting from Nebbiolo d’Alba Piadvenza 2013. Aged in cask - Casavecchia winery does not use the barrique, as they believe the cask is better suited to the expression of Nebbiolo - this wine clearly gives the opportunity to understand the personality of the famour red of Langa, a perfect premise to understand Barolo, a decidedly more robust and complex wine. The event continues with the tasting of the two Barolo wines made by Casavecchia winery in the municipality of Castiglione Falletto, a territory well known for the robust structure of its wines. The Barolos made by Casavecchia belongs to cru Piantà and perfectly give the interpretation of the character typical of their municipality: a deep and intense color, robust structure, astringent tannins, characteristics requiring a long aging in order to get the best balance. Barolo Piantà 2010 - a preview tasting reserved to this DiWineTaste event - allows in fact the understanding of how time, in this case eight years, is beneficial to the balance of Barolo wines made in this territory, with very pleasing tannins - although well perceptible - also thanks to the roundness of wine. The same is perceived in Barolo Riserva 2007, made in a decidedly warmer vintage than 2010, keeps - despite its 11 years of age - a powerful structure and power, with more mature sensations, however a perfect expression of the peculiarities of Barolos from Castiglione Falletto. The sensorial tasting of wines has been conducted by Antonello Biancalana - DiWineTaste chief editor - who has also created, as usual, the dishes paired to the wines of Casavecchia winery.
