Medium Ruby with complex aromas of ripe berry fruits and fresh floral, mint and herb citrus scents, aged for 36 months in oak. On the palate the palate flavors of raspberry, cherry, tobacco and fresh herbs give this medium+ body wine some power, yet it’s graceful and elegant. Soft fine tannins on a well balanced frame makes this wine enjoyable today but it will be better in about 5 years and over the next decade. — 3 days ago
One of my favorite Producers of Barolo. The Monvigliero with its elegance, floral, silky texture along with its whole cluster is youthful, structured showing lots of cherry, strawberry fruits￼, savory spice, herbs, rose petal & tobacco. Consistent with my many prior notes. — 13 days ago
Medium Ruby with aromas of floral, dark berry fruits and oak notes. On the palate flavors of blackberry, ripe cherry, licorice, tobacco and savory vanilla oak spice wrapped in tight firm tannins that need at least 5 more years to start showing finesse. Long finish ending with fruit and earthy mineral spice. Let this one sit for a while, it is a beauty. — 3 days ago
Does not have the energy and the range of the 2010 and the completeness of the 2016. It does not have the magic of Bartolo, the class of Oddero, and the clarity and transparency of Roagna, but if you delight in delicate refinement, there is nothing like Cavalotto. — 7 days ago
Ruby with black fruit aromas and herb floral scents. On the palate dark berry, black cherry & raspberry, cinnamon, licorice and floral herb notes. Full taut tannins bring fruit to long finish ending with spice and earthy mineral. Wonderful! Just beginning to open, will age well over next 5-7 years. — 2 days ago
Nose is really gorgeous but muted. Really elegant cherry flowers. But they are like hidden behind a veil.
Palate is cherry fruit. Some licorice. Maybe a kiss of cocoa? Great silky texture.
Gorgeous material here. Needs a long decant or a few years at this point. But a great wine.
Day 2 still perfect balance. Nose is intense potpourri. Really deep and beautiful. Palate is still so juicy. Dense. Delicious.
