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% Nebbiolo planted in 1961-71. Various plots in Bricco Boschis vineyard site, 325m altitude. Calcareous clay with sandy deposits. Twenty five days maceration, controlled low temperature fermentation in cement with indigenous yeasts Aging: 18 months in 20-100 Slavonian oak botti, 6 months in bottle. No fining, no filtering. Production: 27,000 bottles.

Mid to deep youthful ruby. Beautifully perfumed cherry and raspberry-coulis nose with savoury spice notes. Still a little compact but with great aromatic length and bags of gravelly tannins. Very long and compelling. Ageworthy stuff.
