PIEDMONT
PIEDMONT - the King of Vino Italiano
 

Located in the far north-west of Italy, Piedmont sits at the foot of the Western Alps – the name Piemonte means 'the foot of the mountains' – which forms its border with France and Switzerland. It is the home of more DOCG wines than any other Italian region. Nearly 84% of all the areas wine production fall under a DOC/G designation. The area has no IGT classification. 

The well-known and respected names in Piedmont are Barolo and Barbaresco. Nebbiolo wines are known for their tar and roses bouquet, and the cellaring potential. The Barbera grape is the most widely planted variety in all of the Piedmont and makes a juicy, muscular red wine that is not as tannic as Barolo and Barbaresco.

About Cavallotto

A LOW PROFILE TRADITIONAL BAROLO MASTER


Since 1928, the Cavallottto family has owned the estate Tenuta Bricco Boschis. In 1946, they were the first cultivators in Castiglione Falletto to vinify all of their estate’s fruit. In 1948 they released the first bottling of their own BAROLO wine, with the label and registered trademark of Cavallotto.

Today the children of Olivio – Laura, Giuseppe and Alfio, the 4th generation working the family farm – continue to exclusively vinify the grapes produced in their estate vineyards into DOC and DOCG wines: Barolo, Dolcetto d’Alba, Barbera d’Alba, Langhe Nebbiolo, Langhe Freisa, Langhe “Grign” made from Grignolino grapes, Langhe Chardonnay and “Pinner” made from Pinot Nero grapes.


"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
 
Cavallotto makes wines from two Barolo cru: the first is the Bricco Boschis from which comes the Barolo Bricco Boschis and the Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppe; the other cru is the Vignolo, from which is obtained the Barolo Riserva Vignolo.
