Cavallotto’s 23 ha of vineyard constitute the Bricco Boschis estate. In the past Cavallotto’s wines have tended to lack excitement but the input of a new generation of three brothers are having an impact and the most recent releases have made the most of nature’s beneficence. A traditionally minded producer, Cavallotto ages the wines in large Slavonian oak casks. The money saved by not buying new oak seems to have been invested instead in more care in the vineyard (which includes the 2.5 ha solely owned Vigna San Giuseppe) and winery. Barolos recommended from top vintages since 1997.
