Castiglione Falletto (CN) The Cavallotto wine estate is located in Castiglione Falletto, in Piedmont, and belongs to the territory of one of the most important communes of the Langhe, within which we find some of the most prestigious crus of the entire Barolo appellation. The Cavallotto winery itself can count on one of the most important crus, Bricco Boschis, which covers an area of 23 hectares of vineyards. Today it is Olivio's children - Laura, Giuseppe and Alfio Cavallotto - who firmly hold the reins of the company.
In addition to the Bricco Boschis vineyard, the Cavallotto family purchased 60% of the historic Vignolo cru in 1989. Both cru are dedicated to the cultivation of Nebbiolo da Barolo. The company, however, also owns other plots of land, such as five hectares of Dolcetto (Vigna Melera and Vigna Scot), two hectares of Barbera (Vigna del Cuculo), and the remaining three hectares of Grignolino, Freisa, Pinot Nero and Chardonnay.
In the vineyard, the agronomic choices are aimed at respecting the environment, the ecosystem and nature; what is adopted between the rows is an innovative system of organic viticulture, according to which the plants, trained to guyot, reach a density of 5 thousand vines per hectare and are managed while maintaining low yields per hectare, and are treated according to the rhythm of the seasons. In the cellar, the spaces are functional and designed to accompany in the best possible way the path of the grapes towards their transformation into wine. All things considered, the result is simply excellent wines, able better than any other to represent the highest oenological essence of the Langhe lands. Here at the microphones of Slow Wine
