2007 Barolo Riserva Vignolo, Cavallotto, Piedmont

With all the presence and flavour intensity of San Giuseppe but with an injection of testosterone, the Vignolo Riserva is unmistakeably the more masculine of the two Crus. The higher sand content in the vineyard generates the super-charged tannins in its structure, but these are more than matched by the fruit intensity – huge, ripe foresty red fruits and orange served up with aged cured meats and smoke. Dazzling!

Cavallotto

The Cavallotto family home can be found right in the heart of their vineyard called Bricco Boschis. From here they produce some of the greatest Barolos. Siblings Giuseppe, Laura and Alfio are now in charge and while their wines continue to be traditional expressions of Nebbiolo, the Cavallottos have always been trailblazers in other ways. They are some of the first to experiment with organic viticulture, and to bottle and sell their own wines, rather than work through a merchant.
