Barolo Riserva ‘Vignolo’, Cavallotto

The 10,700 Nebbiolo vines in the Vignolo vineyard, facing south and south-west, were planted in two years: 1948 and 1966. The soil in which they grow is calcareous marl. The grapes themselves are macerated on the skins for a long time – about 26 days – in stainless steel vats. The wine is then transferred to traditional casks of Slavonian oak where it is left to mature for about 4 years. Finally, it spends up to a year continuing to mature in the bottle before it is released.   Average No. cases/year: 580
