Barbera d'Alba Vigna del Cuculo, Cavallotto 2019

Red Wine from Italy - NW Italy (Piedmont)
5.000000000 star rating 2 Reviews
An exceptional barbera from the north of Italy in a fantastic vintage made and from 80-year-old vines on limestone-clay soils that helps to produce wine with unusual finesse. Aged for two years in large, old wooden vats, this has a full body and firm balanced tannins, fresh acidity and blueberry, cherry and liquorice on the finish.

Tenuta Vitivinicola Cavallotto

Giusseppe, Alfio and their sister Laura have 23 hectares of vines, including a large chunk of Bricco Boschis, a marvelous conical hill in the next south-south-west facing fold of hills after Cannubi and Monprivato.

This is a traditional cellar, sitting at the foot of the Bricco, where the Barolos are made for long aging with three years in immaculately kept wood – and they have a library of old vintages to prove it. All wines spend time in wood except for some of the dolcetto, which sees a period in stainless steel. It is large, traditional botti that do the job of maturing the wine, with not a barrique in sight. The tenuta was one of the pioneers of sustainable viticulture in Barolo and continue to farm that way today.
