Cavallotto 2019

Cavallotto 2019

It’s nice to see Cavallotto finally getting some serious recognition. This small, biodynamic and organic, family-run property has been making stellar wines for quite some time, but for some reason the outside world has only caught on relatively recently. The Cavallotto Barolos seem to just keep getting better and better with each passing vintage. This venerable, family-run estate in Castiglione Falletto is a great source for reasonably priced Barolos that will age several decades easily.

“Cavallotto may very well be the greatest Barolo producer few people have ever heard of, something that continues to mystify me.” – Antonio Galloni

The Cavallotto family claims sole ownership of the beautiful Bricco Boschis cru in the Castiglione Falletto district, where they have been growing Nebbiolo since 1929 and bottling their own wine since 1948. These richly structured wines place emphasis on elegance and longevity, attributable to excellent vineyards in the Bricco Boschis cru and traditional long maturation periods in large Slavonian-oak casks.

The land has been organically farmed since the 1970s. Cavallotto divided Bricco Boschis into three parcels: two plots are blended to make the flagship Bricco Boschis Barolo, but the third plot, Vigna San Giuseppe, is also designated and bottled as a single cru riserva.

Special Offer – buy 2 or more cases (6 bottles per case) of 2019 Barolo for £295 per case In Bond.

2017 Barolo Riservas

We are excited to be offering the two 2017 Barolo Riservas from Cavallotto, made in very limited volumes, these offer exceptional quality for very reasonable prices – highly recommended!

The Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis vigna San Giuseppe is the jewel of this property, coming from a vineyard of old vines in the heart of the Bricco Boschis vineyard.

The vine material comes from old clones and is probably the source of the distinctive flavour of this wine.

As usual, it is made in a style that is rich and structured, which demands some time in bottle in order to yield it’s best drinkability.

It is an age-worthy Barolo that Piemonte lovers know to buy and cellar.

Rose, violet, new leather and forest floor are just some of the aromas you ll find on Cavallotto s excellent 2019 Bricco Boschis. Full-bodied and still youthfully austere, it shows great aging potential, delivering juicy red cherry, wild raspberry, star anise and tangy mineral notes suggesting rusty iron, all set against a backbone of tightly knit, fine-grained tannins. Bright acidity lends balance and great energy. Drink 2029-2049. 97 Points, Kerin O Keefe [01/03/2023]

Antonio Galloni

The 2019 Barolo Bricco Boschis is an absolutely gorgeous wine that needs plenty of air to open. Bright red-toned fruit, blood orange, rose petal, cinnamon, star anise and mint all grace this mid-weight, wonderfully expressive Barolo. It has been some years since I have tasted a Cavallotto Barolo with this kind of translucent old-school classicism. [Antonio Galloni, 02/11/2023]

Anticipated maturity: 2025-2034

The estate s selection of the finest vineyard within the Bricco Boschis cru is San Giuseppe, the epitome of Castiglione Falletto: a powerful, majestic wine of absolute authority whose sweetness comes with time. 100% Nebbiolo grown in calcareous clay soils. The grapes are macerated on the skins in steel vats for 26 days; the wine is then aged in Slovenian oak casks of different capacity for 4 years. 1500 cases produced. Hailing from the firm s prime vineyard in the Bricco Boschis cru, Cavallotto s magnificent 2017 Riserva Vigna San Giuseppe opens with classic Barolo aromas of new leather, forest floor, tobacco and ripe berry that mingle with floral scents of dog rose and iris. Full-bodied but smooth and enveloping, the firmly structured palate combines power and finesse, featuring succulent Morello cherry, ripe cranberry, star anise and baking spice accompanied by tightly knit, refined tannins. Fresh acidity - impressive given the scorching vintage - keeps it well balanced. Drink 2029-2044. 98 Points, Kerin O Keefe [01/03/2023]

The Riserva Vignolo is from a different hill in Castiglione Falleto than the Bricco Boschis site where the Cantina sits. It is a deep and powerful wine, with incredible fruit intensity. Again this is made in a traditional age-worthy style with a structure that requires some bottle aging for best results. This is another long-lasting Riserva from Cavallotto and one that will reward patience. Cavallotto s 2017 Riserva Vignolo presents with a deep and luminous ruby-garnet color while the nose features underbrush, leather, pressed rose and ripe dark-skinned berry along with whiffs of camphor. Bold and full-bodied, the delicious, compelling palate offers ripe Morello cherry, black raspberry, licorice and hints of almond alongside firm but velvety tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it lifted and balanced. Drink 2029-2042. 97 Points, Kerin O Keefe [01/03/2023]
