Cavallotto Dolcetto d'Alba Vigna Scot 2022


4 STAR VALUE: David Haglund & Rudolph Nel, Wine Direct

100% Dolcetto d'Alba

Cavallotto’s single vineyard Dolcetto Vigna Scot hails from 2.3 hectares of 30-year-old vines located within Castiglione Falletto’s legendary Monprivato vineyard. These Dolcetto vines face east, meaning it’s a cooler and later-ripening part of the vineyard. On these great soils, the mature vines, low yields and traditional winemaking result in a layered, deep and remarkably serious Dolcetto. While the vast majority of Langhe Dolcetto is raised in stainless steel, the Cavallotto family prefers to use cement tank and 5,000-litre Slavonian botti. This helps to avoid Dolcetto’s tendency for reduction and polishes its tannins.

“This is superb value for money again. The bouquet is all red and black plums with ample spice. Medium ruby fruit colour, with elements of tobacco and pressed rose coming through. Perfectly ripe with good fruit depth, it’s a classic Dolcetto with layers of fruit balanced by fine acidity, plus ripe and lively tannins. The length is very persistent. ”
