Deliciously juicy muddled and leathery fruit, root beer, wilted flowers, earth. A traditional feeling Langhe Nebbiolo that has rustic charm and punches above its weight every time.

Dark cherries, earth. Lovely. Excellent food wine. With this value, buy by the case.

Arguably one of the best value Langhe Nebbiolo wines there is. Young vine and de-classified fruit from the estate vineyard of Bricco Boschis, traditional to the core, classic aromatic and structural components. Finding this 2014 just a touch hot on the palate though. Dust, tar, rose, cherry, herbs, and leather. There's a dusty/dried character to the wine that charms with its rustic appeal.

Remarkable Langhe Nebbiolo from Cavalotto that would outshine most Barolos in terms of quality. To young but there is no denying of its inherent quality. Classical in its approach with a high concentration of red slightly tart fruit, roses, smoke, spice and stones with a slight volatile finish. High acidity and gum coating tannins dominate the palate, strong mid palate and a long finish. An impressive invitation to Cavalottos arsenal. From younger vines in the Barolo zone, 20-35 days submerged cap maceration with 15-18 months in Slavonian casks.

Ripe yet wonderfully fresh red fruits. Loads of power for a Langhe Nebbiolo. Lacks a bit in the complexity department but make no mistake, this is a rocking good Langhe. Delicious.

Delicious nebbiolo - declassified a lot of barolo in 2014- so great quality. Altough 2012 is even better and bigger more complex structure

Very nice, easy drinking Langhe with nice mix of red and dark fruit. Medium, very smooth tannins. Medium plus acidity. Medium body. Nice finish. Would love to have this again with pizza or pasta with red sauce,

Declassified barolo partially from bricco boschis, quite solid. Bright open mid palate with solid backbone of nebbiolo tannin can even age a while more. Great deal for price
