Winemaker Notes

Garnet red with distinctive orange glares that become more evident with aging. Quite intense aromas, persistent and delicate, with hints of blueberry, black plum and slight trances of candied orange peel, dried almonds, woody and boisè moods. Dry, lightly fresh but sapid, very warm, still tannic, well structured and persistent with a bitterish background.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
From Castiglione Falletto, the Cavalier Bartolomeo 2015 Barolo Altenasso is a real beauty that hits the senses from many directions, thus building the wine's intensity and momentum. This Barolo exudes power and depth, and despite that extra muscle, the wine remains well balanced and harmonious, especially in terms of the bouquet. The heat of the vintage tends to peek through the curtains when it comes to mouthfeel. You'll recognize it in the loose textural knitting and the dark cherry, plum and blackberry flavors.

Cavalier Bartolomeo Winery Video

Cavalier Bartolomeo was founded in 1924 by Bartolomeo Borgogno, grandfather of the current owner, who learned to make wine from the grapes of his vineyards by his father. After five generations, in part, the vineyards were renewed while the Nebbiolo da Barolo ones remained intact and immaculate. Over time, the working methods have been updated both in the vineyard and in the cellar, paying careful attention to pruning, thinning, harvesting and with controlled fermentations. Today the company produces a total of 15,000 bottles a year. The company is located in the heart of the Barolo area, under the municipality of Castiglione Falletto, in the small hamlet of Garbelletto, which can be reached by taking the highway which from Alba heads towards Barolo, 300 meters before the Barolo - La Morra crossroads.

The center of the production of the world’s most exclusive and age-worthy red wines made from Nebbiolo, the Barolo wine region includes five core townships: La Morra, Monforte d’Alba, Serralunga d’Alba, Castiglione Falletto and the Barolo village itself, as well as a few outlying villages. The landscape of Barolo, characterized by prominent and castle-topped hills, is full of history and romance centered on the Nebbiolo grape. Its wines, with the signature “tar and roses” aromas, have a deceptively light garnet color but full presence on the palate and plenty of tannins and acidity. In a well-made Barolo wine, one can expect to find complexity and good evolution with notes of, for example, strawberry, cherry, plum, leather, truffle, anise, fresh and dried herbs, tobacco and violets.

There are two predominant soil types here, which distinguish Barolo from the lesser surrounding areas. Compact and fertile Tortonian sandy marls define the vineyards farthest west and at higher elevations. Typically the Barolo wines coming from this side, from La Morra and Barolo, can be approachable relatively early on in their evolution and represent the “feminine” side of Barolo, often closer in style to Barbaresco with elegant perfume and fresh fruit.

On the eastern side of the Barolo wine region, Helvetian soils of compressed sandstone and chalks are less fertile, producing wines with intense body, power and structured tannins. This more “masculine” style comes from Monforte d’Alba and Serralunga d’Alba. The township of Castiglione Falletto covers a spine with both soil types.

The best Barolo wines need 10-15 years before they are ready to drink, and can further age for several decades.

Responsible for some of the most elegant and age-worthy wines in the world, Nebbiolo, named for the ubiquitous autumnal fog (called nebbia in Italian), is the star variety of northern Italy’s Piedmont region. Grown throughout the area, as well as in the neighboring Valle d’Aosta and Valtellina, it reaches its highest potential in the Piedmontese villages of Barolo, Barbaresco and Roero. Outside of Italy, growers are still very much in the experimentation stage but some success has been achieved in parts of California. Somm Secret—If you’re new to Nebbiolo, start with a charming, wallet-friendly, early-drinking Langhe Nebbiolo or Nebbiolo d'Alba.
