Ca’ de Lion was founded in 1871 by Luigi Ghione, who was inspired by his farthest ancestor, Leone Ghione (1655), from whom the winery took its name. From then, five generations are gone and the winery takes care of its history, affairs and evolutions of technique. Last 50 years are the consolidations of company development and awareness: Ca’ de Lion produces and vinifies all its wines with last technologies about bottling and product processing. But it’s Tradition the key word for this company reality: respect for territory grapes, respect for traditional wine making practices, respect for their roots and for the time’s lessons.
From a small and old vineyard this aromatic red is born, which takes its name from a historic farmhouse in the hills of 1650: the Ca ‘de Lion. Crushing and destemming of the grapes, fermentation on the grape marcs for about 6 days, followed by a brief refinement in steel tank and subsequent bottling.
Lasting and airy perfume, rich of violet and rose, with ruby/orange tones. To have the best tasting, it’s better open the bottle some hours before serving at room temperature.
This great wine is suitable for important dishes like game and cheese.
