1991. It is carved in the beginning of the decade that year the debut of Beppe Caviola in the wine world. After his studies, the young Beppe is used at the Gallo Center for Enology, just outside Alba. There he met Maurizio Anselmo, with whom he formed a deep friendship and likely to change both their lives. Maurizio comes from Rodello, a handful of houses put on the upwind side of a large hill full of rows of candy. Hobby work a vineyard handkerchief which gives the fruits to the local cooperative. Especially, it possesses a tractor. Beppe asks him to also use it in a small farm on which he has set his sights in his Montelupo, another tiny village on the road from Diano slips southward. This is the Langa of the eighties: hills not yet known on which begins to blow a new wind, and where owning a tractor to work a vineyard can make a difference. So how does the difference know the right teachers. Beppe rent that vineyard of dreams, called Barturot, and processes the grapes in the garage of his parents' home. One day Elio Altare, already established star of the Barolo galaxy, taste the wine and encourages Beppe bottling. They come out 860 bottles of Dolcetto. The first label signed Caviola. It is 1991.
