Cavalloto is one of those region-defining, memory-creating wines that needs no red carpet or elaborate story once tasted. They are, simply, one of the most respected names in all of Italy. Their flagship, San Giuseppe Barolo Riserva, consistently ranks among Italy’s grandest reds. Atop the monopole of Bricco Boschis sits this mythical vineyard where the Cavollotto family have been farming for nearly a century.
Time and time again, this wine stands up against the greatest in all of Piedmont. Critics are continually shocked that it is not more well known. If we had a guess how this secret is so well kept, it would have to do with the fact that the brothers, who now run the estate, care for only one thing, carrying on the tradition of making some of the best Barolo year in and year out.
