Young vines and less than perfect fruit that will not make it into the barolo, harvested  one to two weeks earlier than barolo fruit.
 
Wild cherry, watermelon, herb stems and stones really fill the glass in a captivating display of nebbiolo perfume. Opening with great ripeness this shows off sweet fruit with bright acids and tense tannins in near perfect balance.The fruit here is just gorgeous, fresh and detailed with a medicinal herb edge leading to a long, elegant finish filled with with cherry pits, herb stems, stones and mint. Killer Langhe Nebbiolo 93pts
 
 
80% young vine Bricco Boschis, the rest comes from vineyards that are outside bricco boschis, since they don't make a base Barolo it all goes in here. Traditionally made with 18 months of aging, in more simple vintages maybe 15
 
Nice nose, a bit earthy yet powerful with sandalwood and macerated floral notes accenting rather plummy and raspberry scented fruit with an attractive a hint of tar. In the mouth this is both soft and at the same time a fairly rich with great acidity and nice soft tannins supporting with dark fruit that shows a tarry edge and a hint of medicinal florals, maybe a touch of chamomile. There’s also a spicy minty aspect to the wine that I often find in Cavallotto’s wines. The finish is long and shows the slightly chewy, muscular nature of this vintage. Classic Nebbiolo. 92pts
 
 
The lowest parts of Margheria and Merenga planted specifically for use in Lange Nebbiolo fourteen years ago. These lower vineyards seem to hold more water in the berries so the wines come off as less extracted than higher plts, this vintage the extract is the maximum, same harvest time as barolo
 
Lovely nose filled with pure Nebbiolo fruit, high toned, rose hips, a little agrumi, forest floor, porcini, wild cherry fruit. If you want to smell Nebbiolo, here it is! Lots of round slightly chewy tannins lend this some weight in the mouth and while this is a little short today, this is rather Barolo like on the palate. A powerful little Nebbiolo, tarry and really an impressive expression of the vintage with a  killer nose. A damn fine wine but atypical in it’s power and depth. 92pts
 
Very aromatic with a really compelling nose filled wild berries, balsamic spices, some cinnamon and a bit of minty fresh herbs. This is  intense and ripe in the mouth with impressive complexity and freshness. It has a lovely, lightly chewy feel due to the significant ripe tannins and  fine acidity. In the mouth this is remarkably aromatic, and quite Barbaresco like with its masses of ripe fresh balsamic fruit, nice cranberry and  strawberry notes topped with herbal, bay leaf and rose petal top notes. A big Langhe Nebbiolo with alcohol of 14.5% this is powerful and full, though today it does seem just a bit light on the finish. 91pts
 
 
A little over-ripeness greets the nose followed by little smoky, stony, mineral nuances.  Bright, clean, and mineral in the mouth this is really energetic with lovely fine tannins supporting elegant, raspberry and strawberry fruit topped with little tarry, floral top notes in the mouth and turning orange blossomy on the long and perfumed finish. The purity of fruit here is impressive and this shows really nice cut on the finish with decisive small tannins. Vivid and lightweight 91pts
 
 
28 day fermentation, six months in botte
 
Classic aromas greet the nose, prune in alcohol, slightly herbal, gently medicinal with a touch of beef and chocolate rounding out the aromas. Easy and open in style, this offers up lots of ripe fruit, lots of acid, and lots of tannin for Langhe Nebbiolo. A baby Barolo in the making with deep rose petal and cactus pad flavors on the palate, and through the really lovely long, aromatic and powerful finish, where is admittedly does show a hint of heat. 90pts
