On the periphery of the Castiglione Falletto township, centre of the Barolo area, crowning the Bricco Boschis hill, one comes upon the Tenuta Vitivinicola Cavallotto (the Cavallotto Vineyards) of 25 hectares of which 23 spread of vineyards.

Cavallotto Estate has been in the family for five generations and in 1948, the brothers Olivio and Gildo, who were continuing the work of their grandfather Giacomo, their father Giuseppe and their uncle Marcello, became the first people of the area to dedicate themselves to the production and trading of wines. These wines were obtained solely from the grapes of their own vineyards.

Olivio's offspring, Laura, Giuseppe, and Alfio continue to produce wine which is made exclusively from the estate's grapes and from the transformation of these they obtain DOC and DOCG: Barolo, Dolcetto d'Alba, Barbera d'Alba, Nebbiolo Langhe, Freisa Langhe, Grignolino Piedmonte, Pinot Langhe, Chardonnay Langhe.

TASTING NOTES: Wine Enthusiast 95 points Perfumed with woodland berry, dried rose, cake spice and sweet pipe tobacco, this is one of the most impressive of the '09 Riservas. The delicious, full bodied palate offers layers of juicy black cherry, clove, cinnamon, licorice and mineral. Firm, ripe tannins give it structure and a polished feel. Drink 2019 2029..Kerin O'Keefe, February/2016

Wine Spectator 90 points A muscular version, this red sports black cherry, plum, leather, licorice and earth flavors. The burly tannins will require time to fold into the mix. Fine length. Best from 2018 through 2032. 700 cases made. BS .September/2015

eRobertParker.com 94 points Cavallotto's 2009 Barolo Riserva Vignolo delivers less floral definition compared to the Riserva Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppe. This a slightly more austere and masculine expression with broader brush strokes of dark fruit, spice and grilled herb. Barolo Riserva Vignolo's structure is important and compelling. The wine definitely promises a long aging trajectory of 15 years or more. .Monica Larner, June/2015
