esbrown reviewed Cavallotto Barolo Riserva Vignolo 1999 on October 30, 2006
Produced only in the best years from a vineyard just to the southwest of the famed Bricco Boschis. A lovely mix of aromas, with bright and spicy notes of pine, rosemary and clove mixing with dark and brambly perfume and blackberries. Very complex! The palate is juicy and plush, with long, chewy tannins and an amazingly soft feel for a wine of such weight. Lots of spicy fruit character and lots of complexity. A wonderful and classicly correct Barolo.
