Details

The Dolcetto grape the Casavecchia use for the “Söri Bruni” is grown with special care and skill in Diano d’Alba. In the municipality of Diano d’Alba all high wine vocation vineyards were categorized and named “Söri”, an expression that in Piedmontese dialect means “SUNNY”. The Dolcetto grape grown on these vineyards with special care and skill originates a wine of extraordinary pleasantness and longevity.


Diano d’Alba Söri Bruni’s colour is bright ruby red, its bouquet fragrant, rich and complex, with intense and pleasant fruity notes. The taste is full, alive butm soft and sufficiently tannic, resulting in great balance and long persistency.

Diano d’Alba’ s territory

Diano d’Alba’ s territory - The centre of Diano d’Alba sits at 500m above sea level on one of the hills included in its territory. The town has Roman origins and takes its name from the God of the Hunt, Diana. It became famous during Medieval times for its magnificent castle, later destroyed during the French occupation. The town’s history and passage through time is illustrated in its buildings such as the church, the town hall and beautiful farmhouses. From each side of the hill, a spectacular view is to be had; Alba, the Tanaro valley and the amphitheatre of the Barolo region are framed with the Alps. The area’s microclimate particularly lends itself to great wine production: those that can be produced in the area are Barolo, Nebbiolo, Barbera d’Alba and last but not least Diano d’Alba. The region’s terrain and special climate allow the Dolcetto vine to produce wines that have great structure, intense fruity notes, a pleasant full bodied and persistent character, so much so that it was decided to differentiate it from other Dolcetto’s by calling it Diano d’Alba. Within Diano d’Alba’ s territory, the vineyards of exceptionally high quality have been classified as “Söri”, an expression that in Piedmontese dialect means “sun-soaked”.

The Casavecchia Estate

The Casavecchia estate has a long history of “Söri” winemaking as above described. The farmhouse situated in the historical centre dates back to 1700 and was built using Langa stones and traditional bricks. The wine cellar, architecturally from the same period is situated partly underneath the house with brick vaults and ceilings with wooden beams. Here in the cellar, the Diano d’Alba matures in cement or steel tanks, and the Nebbiolo, Barbera and Barolo evolve in oak casks of different sizes. All production is carried out with grapes cultivated over an area of approximately 10 hectares, divided as follows: 6 hectares approx. of Dolcetto, 2 hectares approx. of Nebbiolo, 1 hectare approx. of Barbera, 1 hectare approx. of Nebbiolo for Barolo in the region of Castiglione Falletto. The Casavecchia estate today is managed by brothers Marco and Luca, respectively Agronomist and Winemaker, and still follow the advice of their experienced father Sergio. The Commercial side of the Estate is managed by Carletta Artusio, who also comes from a traditional winemaking family. Wine production in terms of quantity is limited, but the high quality of the process guarantees a selection of wines highly recognisable for their pleasant nature, balanced harmony and structure.
