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.
