Cavallotto Barbera d'Alba Superiore Vigna del Cuculo 2017
2016 vintage notes
You might tire of hearing about how incredible Piedmont 2016s are but you'll forgive us as soon as you start drinking the wines. Long our gold standard for Barbera, in a league with less than a handful of peers, the '16 is even more perfect than normal! So bright and fresh from the vintage, pure elegance from start to finish. If Barolo and Barbera had a lovechild, this would be it. - Marcus
Barbera in 2016 gave us a surprisingly ageworthy wine - the cool conditions allowed a fantastic acid profile to develop to full maturity. The red plum and raspberry fruit shows particular depth, with hints of eucalyptus and saddle leather. The characteristic acidity of Barbera has been polished by the 24 months in botti, which give a round, silky and very fresh mouthfeel to the wine. The finish is bright, long and with mineral notes that intensify the freshness. - Cavallotto
