Cavallotto Langhe Nebbiolo 2016
The fruit for Cavallotto's Langhe-designated bottling is 100% Castiglione Falletto Nebbiolo and so could be labelled as Barolo. One sip and you wonder why the Cavallotto's don't sell this as Barolo! The reason they don't is simple: they need to produce a Nebbiolo Langhe for their markets and yet the only Nebbiolo vines they own are in Barolo. So they must 'fashion' a Nebbiolo from these vines. To be specific, the grapes come from both younger, sub-25 year old vines in the Bricco Boschis and Vignolo crus as well as 50-60 year old vines from two smaller Estate plots in the Codana and Pernanno crus also in Castiglione. Again, here is a wine that offers the kind of dense fruit and flowing smoothness that can only come from ripe fruit and low yields. It sees 17-18 months in botti before being bottled without filtration. It offers wonderful perfume and layer upon layer of completely seductive, sweet and complex Nebbiolo fruit in the mouth.
In a mixed or straight case: $70.29
