CAMILLA

 A name, a history

Camilla is the name given by Bruna and Franco to the Barolo that comes from plots located in Grinzane Cavour, more in details from a vineyard that has always been referred to as “la Camila” by the wine growers. Camilla is one of the four farmhouses that, at the time of Camillo Benso count of Cavour, belonged to the Castello di Grinzane Cavour’s holdings.
Bruna and Franco decided to bring back the name “Camilla” to the label of Barolo that comes from this vineyard, in honour of its origin and history. Nowadays Barolo Camilla is produced with the grapes from the historic vineyards, located in the Raviole cru and from other two plots in the Borzone cru, in the municipality of Grinzane Cavour and Roere di Santa Maria cru, located in La Morra. The three vineyards present a similar soil in terms of age and composition which is made up of Marne di Sant’Agata Fossili with a high level of clay, little sand and medium quantity of limestone. The terroirs are medium slope and present a good depth and are rather evolved. They all face full south and are located on open hills, well aerated and exposed.
