Dogliani D.O.C.G. "Daj Butaj"

t is the newcomer in our farm after the recognition of the “controlled and guaranteed” denomination on the territory.
These grapes (100% dolcetto) come from a further accurate selection of those gathered in the highest and sunniest parts of the vineyard called Surimatin and of other vineyards nearby the “butaj” that can be seen on the label. The “butaj” are a kind of barrel used in the past for the work in the vineyards. Today you can still observe them as you arrive in our farm.
This wine isn’t bottled until the month of September of the year following the vintage and we start to sell it in the second half of November.
The scent recalls the ripest red fruits and it becomes somewhat spicy after some time. It’s a full-bodied wine, that’s why it has to be matched with meat courses or matured cheeses; it is perfect as a meditation wine together with tasty snacks as well.
This kind of wine isn’t produced in less favourable years like 2005 has been for our farm, even if that was the debut year for the Dogliani DOCG. It normally gets better in its first 2-3 years and even further, maintaining excellent qualities at least for 4-5 years in the best vintages.

Dogliani D.O.C. "Surimatin"

This selection of dolcetto grapes comes mostly from the vineyard set above the courtyard. Enjoining the South-Eastern exposure, it takes the first morning sun. On the label you can see a man who is harvesting in this particular vineyard, with the sun on the background.
This wine isn’t bottled until the month of August of the year following the vintage. Usually we start to sell it after two further months in which it refines in the bottles..
The scent recalls the ripest red fruits and, especially after some months from the bottling, it becomes more complex, winy and structured almost seeming like the Dolcetto Docg..
It espouses cheeses and meats, such as the traditional mixed bollito but also more elaborated first courses; even if you don’t drink much, this wine is suitable for the entire meal, though scoring a higher alcoholic level. It gets better even up to 3 years or more after the vintage.

Dogliani D.O.C.G.

This selection of dolcetto grapes often comes from several vineyards. On the label you can see the building in which the cellar was set before the restoration of the premises used today.
This is always the first dolcetto to be bottled, usually not before the months of May or June following the harvest and it is put on the market not much later.
Its scent recalls the small red fruits and it is fairly structured, it is more full-bodied in case of dry years. Our advice is to consume it with all the courses of the meal, but it is especially suggested with meaty starters and not particularly elaborated first courses in case you want to drink more full-bodied wines later in the meal.

About us

Company details

Activity
Azienda Agricola Caraglio has always been a mixed-activities farm, though viticulture being the main one; to be more precise, we also have cereals or stable meadow on our fields and there are fruit-trees such as apples, peaches, cherries for the family consumption as well.

The farm had comprehended a cattle-breeding (up to 65 Piedmontese-breed bovines) up to 2002. It was useful for the re-employment and “transformation” of cereals and forage. Recently, we have decided to give a more specific address to the farm and, also due to the new laws, after closing down the breeding, we decided to restore the stable and to set up the new cellar there in 2005.

At present we sell forage and cereals to neighbouring farms which re-employ them in the feeding of Piedmontese-breed bovines. There’s a small number of rabbits and hens left for the family consumption, as well as other pets.

Persons

The Caraglios first settled in “Cascina Candia” at the end of the 1920s because of the will of Piero and Mario’s grandfather, Celso called “Ceciu”, who had already dealt with agricultural, viticultural and wine-making activities in another farm in the same area.
At that time Francesco called “Cichin”, Piero and Mario’s father, and his numerous brothers and sisters were already devoting themselves completely to the work of fields and vineyards; Mario and Giuseppe, the other male brother dead before his time 25 years ago, then succeeded their grandfather.
