The first Caberlot wine was made with a long Barrique in French barriques, Bottling without filtration and long bottle storage vinified before sale. A special feature is that the barrels are rotated regularly on special racks. The first marketed vintage 1988 caused a sensation due to its abundance and concentration and became the cult wine, The single color label shows a bold black cross in the middle with a brush so that the wine can be recognized immediately from afar. The amount of black color shows the vintage character: strong wines = a lot of color, more elegant wines = less color. The red wine "Il Caberlot" is exclusively in Magnum or double magnum bottles and only by subscription sold in triple wooden boxes (max. 6 bottles per person). “Il Carnasciale”, which used to be ready to drink, is made from younger vines. In contrast to its “big brother”, the labels have a white cross.
