Cavallotto Dolcetto d'Alba Vigna Scot 2021


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.

“As always, this punches well above its weight. The bouquet is layered and rich with dark fruit, spice, pipe tobacco and pressed rose. Perfectly ripe and with brooding fruit depth, it’s a deep, nuanced, and soulful Dolcetto with layers of fruit shot through by bright acidity and refreshing tannins. The length is striking, too.”
