Cavallotto Winery

Exclusive owners and producers of the famed Bricco Boschis cru, Cavallotto is situated in the heart of Barolo’s Castiglione Falletto commune. From here the Cavallotto family crafts a set of wines that are as traditional as they are delicious. Castiglione Falletto’s sandy/calcareous clays combine with the Cavallotto’s meticulous viticulture and low yields to produce wines that offer bewitching depth and texture as well as the classical structure that plucks away at the heartstrings of Barolo devotees.

While the showpiece of the family’s vineyards is the monopole Bricco Boschis, there is also the adjoining Vignolo cru that also produces outstanding Barolo. Nonetheless, the majority of the Estate’s bottlings come from the majestic Bricco Boschis, at the foot of which can be found both the family home and cantina. Facing south/southeast, this sun-drenched hill has long been considered one of Barolo’s blue-ribbon vineyards. The planted area is 8.8ha yet because of variation in soil composition, elevation and aspect, the Cavallottos divide the site into three subzones: Vigne Colle Sud-Ovest, Punta Marcello and Vigna San Giuseppe. The last of these is also bottled as a single cru Riserva. The densely planted old vines grow here at an altitude of 300-360m and the soils, a patchwork of yellow, white and grey calcareous clays, interwoven with sand and sandstone, are as varied as the vineyard’s many exposures. 

WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING:

“Cavallotto may very well be the greatest Barolo producer few people have ever heard of, something that continues to mystify me. Truth is, it isn’t just the Barolos here that are impressive, the entry-level wines are every bit as delicious and well-priced … Readers who appreciate a firm, classic style of Barolo will want to spend some time getting to know Cavallotto.” Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate

“The Fratelli Cavallotto estate in Castiglione Falletto has been turning out some of the purest expressions of Nebbiolo ever since brothers Olivio and Guido Cavallotto began bottling their own Barolos from their spectacular Bricco Boschis vineyards back in 1948.” Kerin O’Keefe, The World Of Fine Wine, Issue 24

Cavallotto Barbera D'Alba Vigna Cucolo 2010


89 Points Wine Advocate

"Cavallotto's Vigna Cuculo is big league Barbera and comes from a parcel of 50+-year-old vines within the western side of Bricco Boschis. This parcel is named after the Cuckoo bird (we're not sure why and neither is Alfio Cavallotto). The unique stature of this wine can, again, be attributed to the mature vines, low yields and powerful terroir of the Bricco Boschis. These elements, al .....

Cavallotto Barolo Bricco Boschis 2011

"Cavallotto's emblematic Barolo is crafted from two parcels within the Bricco Boschis cru. The Punta Marcello lies on the apex of the hill by the cantina. This cool terroir is planted to the relatively rare Rosé sub-varietal which is know for its fragrant, pale juice and long, angular tannins. The Vigna Colle Sud-Ovest parcel of the Bricco Boschis lies at a lower elevation and, fac .....

Cavallotto Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppe 2009

"The fruit for the Barolo Riserva San Giuseppe derives from the quarter of the Bricco Boschis known as Vigna San Giuseppe. Rising steeply behind the family's dwelling and cantina, this 2.45 hectare block has long been considered an x-factor site that consistently delivers one of the greatest Barolo's of the region. Like in Burgundy, where the grand crus occupy the mid-slope of the C&o .....

Cavallotto Barolo Riserva Vignolo 2009


93 Points Wine Advocate

"Cavallotto's Barolo Riserva Vignolo comes from a 1.6 hectare parcel of this cru, which forms a ridge of southwest facing vineyards along with Codana and Monprivato. Planted between 1948 and 1966, Vignolo has some of the highest limestone content in Castiglione Falletto and lies 60-80 metres lower than the Bricco Boschis. These are two factors, among many, that account for this wine's .....

Cavallotto Dolcetto D'Alba Vigna Scot 2015

"This is simply one of the finest bargains we can offer. Cavallotto's single vineyard Dolcetto Vigna Scot hails from 2.3 hectares of 30-year-old vines located on the same hill as the Bricco Boschis cru. To be precise, these vines lie within Castiglione Falleto's legendary Monprivato cru, with the same soils but naturally a different aspect to the Nebbiolo grown here. Here the vines fa .....

Cavallotto Langhe Nebbiolo 2012

"A really beautiful bottling of Cavalotto's Langhe Nebbiolo. Succulently ripe and deep, with an intense mouth perfume of dried violet and dark cherries, wild strawberries and undergrowth, a silky, mouth-filling texture, and super fine tannins keeping the whole thing racy and refreshing. Deep and long and simply too good for its classification. The quality makes sense when you know the bac .....
