    March 10, 2019 - Dekantert 2 t. Rubinrød. Lukter treverk, kirsebær og lær. Lett munnfølelse med silkefrukt. Polert. Bra struktur og tørr finish. Moderat grip. Deklasset Barolo. Drikker bra nå, men holdbar.

    February 9, 2019 - Very much a lower key Barolo. Fine dark red fruits, cherry and plum. Black tea. Bit of forest floor. Good acidity, medium length. Great value. No rush if you've got more.

    July 6, 2018 - I haven't bought the Cavallotto nebbiolo in quite some time, and would probably have passed on this as well but for the recommendation of a wine store owner I trust. Boy, am I glad I didn't! This is delicious, slurpable stuff, but with plenty of serious elements if you stop to think about them. Dense and juicy, though not "grapey" (a thing I don't like), with plenty of acid carrying it along to a full bodied finish. Open and nearly opulent, except that there's plenty of frame and structure to keep the fruit from getting out of hand, as well as a savory element that I quite like. The nebbiolo character is clearly in evidence and, while no one would mistake it for Barolo, it's sure to please even the most stodgy among us. You could serve this to anyone, I think. Not going to make any predictions about its future, as I'm pretty sure we'll go through it before it starts to fade. I could be wrong, of course - this is declassified Barolo, as they didn't make one in 2014, so could have a lot more stuffing. Not decanted, served in a Riedel sommelier burg stem, since we happened to have them out and already in use from this guys big brother earlier in the evening.

    April 14, 2018 - From the glass list at Charlie Bird. This was really drinking very nice and open. Lighter in color and mouthfeel - quite silky and elegant on the palate. Tastes of red fruit, and lot of dried leaf forest floor notes - some florals. Very pretty - would make a great daily drinker for the cellar.

    February 18, 2018 - Bright and juicy. Hardly any tannins. Easy drinking, but very delicious and satisfying. Probably not for the long haul.
