2013 Barolo Riserva Vignolo, Cavallotto, Piedmont

A touch more 'rustic' in the loosest possible sense than the San Giuseppe, the Vignolo shows notes of tobacco and dried leaves, alongside a dark cherry core, and a cool and mineral finish. The tannins are considerable, but soften with time in the glass, while the finish lasts an age. Another winning 2013 from Cavallotto.

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.
