Barolo is known as the 'King of Red Wine', deliciously deep and ruby red and made from 100% Nebbiolo for Barolo grapes. Our Barolo is produced in Piemonte by pioneering Barolo producers Cavalloto and it is their flagship wine. Natural and organic, this 2012 Barolo was scored 91/100 by Wine Searcher who collate scores and awards from the world's top palates. The 100 point scale is the most common way of scoring wine and a score between 90 and 94 signifies an 'Outstanding wine of superior character and style'.
Cavalloto's Barolo is soft, sensual, intense and inviting, full bodied and warm. It has characteristic aromas of red and black cherries, with summer herbs, anise and penetrating floral notes. In the mouth, the nuanced flavours of cherries, raspberries and hints of eucalyptus combine with a balanced yet subtle tannic structure. The after taste is long and spicy, with mineral and berry flavours.
This wine pairs well with prosciutto, salami, red meat, grilled fish and also hard or aged cheeses. It is also wonderful with desserts made with dark chocolate and is considered an excellent 'Vino da meditazione' or meditation wine - it can be enjoyed all by itself.

Our Producer – Cavalloto Fratelli
Established in 1928 by Olivio Cavalloto and organically farmed since the 1970's, the 24 acre estate is located in a place rich in history which has been cultivated since the 1800's.
For the last 20 years Olivio’s children Alfio, Giuseppe and Laura have continued the work of gradual growth and constant quality improvements begun by their father. The Cavallotto family has always been highly attentive to the care of their plants and to the technical aspects of working the land.
Through detailed analysis of the terrain, the area and positions of the vines, the family has been able to make great improvements in vineyard practices since the 1970s. Olivio became impatient with and worried by the continued increases in the use of dangerous chemical products such as miticides, pesticides, herbicides and many other chemicals – those that work by being absorbed into the plant’s vascular system. The Cavalotto family were pioneers in organic farming, completely abandoning chemical pesticides and adopting sustanable viticultural practices.
