Winemaker Notes

This Nebbiolo comes from younger vines from the Barolo area. Great structure with typical Barolo aromas, with mostly floral, fruity and spicy scents, open and intense. Excellent aging potential.

Pair with grilled red meats, hard cheeses, or matured chocolate.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Langhe Nebbiolo shows great character and great fruit intensity. If you are curious about the quality of Nebbiolo fruit in 2012 (for next year's Barolo), this wine offers great perspective. Sweet cherry and wild herbs merge with vitality and force. The wine is silky and clean with bright menthol endnotes to keep it lively. This Langhe Nebbiolo sees a simple, non-interventionists' regime of 18 months in large Slavonian oak cask.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
A mix of sweet floral, cherry and strawberry flavors is offset by tobacco and underbrush notes in this firm, athletic red. Fresh and chalky on the long finish. Drink now through 2022. 1,385 cases made.

Cavallotto Winery Image
On the periphery of the Castiglione Falletto township, centre of the Barolo area, crowning the Bricco Boschis hill, one comes upon the Tenuta Vitivinicola Cavallotto (the Cavallotto Vineyards) of 25 hectares of which 23 spread of vineyards.

Cavallotto Estate has been in the family for five generations and in 1948, the brothers Olivio and Gildo, who were continuing the work of their grandfather Giacomo, their father Giuseppe and their uncle Marcello, became the first people of the area to dedicate themselves to the production and trading of wines. These wines were obtained solely from the grapes of their own vineyards.

Olivio's offspring, Laura, Giuseppe, and Alfio continue to produce wine which is made exclusively from the estate's grapes and from the transformation of these they obtain DOC and DOCG: Barolo, Dolcetto d'Alba, Barbera d'Alba, Nebbiolo Langhe, Freisa Langhe, Grignolino Piedmonte, Pinot Langhe, Chardonnay Langhe.

Attracting the most glory, prestige and fame to the Piedmont region, Nebbiolo in all of its expressions—Barolo, Barbaresco, Roero, Ghemme and Gattinara—creates a complex wine, truly unique for its delicate qualities combined with strength and a great potential to improve over time.

But Nebbiolo isn’t all there is to red wine from Piedmont! Barbera is the most planted variety and historically most popular as a dependable, food-friendly, everyday wine.

Beyond these two, a surprising number of red varieties call Piedmont their home. Worth a try include Dolcetto for its bold concentration and aromas of spice cake. Other grapes to investigate include Freisa, Croatina, Brachetto, Grignolino and Pelaverga.
