Description

Details of wine

The Cavallotto company is fortunate to be located in a very flourishing territory where the crus of Bricco Boschis and Vignolo are the masters. The 25 hectares on which the vines extend are cultivated with an organic viticulture system. All the phases of the collection are carried out by hand and respect for the terroir is ino the cardinal principles of the production of this cellar.
The 2017 vintage of Barbera d'Alba Vigna del Cuculo was affected in an extraordinary way by the heat that allowed a perfect balance between the acidity and freshness of this grape. One of the best vintages for aging with hints of stone fruits, raspberry and black currant. The taste is intensely fresh. Appetizers for sausages, hard-grain cheeses and red meats in general are ideal for tasting.
