Located in Castiglione Falletto, Cavallotto is one of Barolo’s most fabled estates, farming Nebbiolo since 1929 and bottling their own wine since 1948. They own one of Barolo’s few monopoles, Bricco Boschis. Bricco Boschis is an incredible vineyard site, a steep amphitheater with some rolling contours and spines intermixed, perfectly orientated. Viticulture is certified organic. Today, brothers Alfio and Giuseppe Cavallotto are the fifth generation to farm the estate and make the wines. Cavallotto is a classical (old school) estate that ferments the wine on the skins for 30+ days and ages them slowly, 48 to 60 months in large Slavonian oak cask. They are some of the latest released wines of each vintage and among the longest lived.

Organic. 100% old vine Nebbiolo. Vigna San Giuseppe is situated on the highest and best exposed part of Bricco Boschis, where the soils are even sandier than in other parts of the MGA, due to the simultaneous presence of Diano Sandstones and sandy Sant’Agata Fossili Marls. Thirty five days maceration, controlled low temperature fermentation in cement  with indigenous yeasts Aging: 60 months in 20-100 Slavonian oak botti, 12 months in bottle. No fining, no filtering. Production: 11,000 bottles.

Intense smoky woodland nose, with a lot of mineral earthiness along with liquorice, graphite, tar and earthy dark cherry. Large, powerful and extracted tannins dominate the palate, with crisp, brilliant acidity. A really muscular and angular wine, almost over-extracted and quite biting on the finish, but prepared for the long haul.
