2010 vintage notes

No trip to Barolo is complete without a visit to Cavallotto, and no Barolo collection is complete without Cavallotto Riservas! The largest bottle I could find...alas, I could not fit in my suitcase. While this has 1-2 decades of cellarability ahead of it, it was nonetheless amazing with the proper cuisine.

97 points Wine Enthusiast, Cellar Selection: "After a few minutes in the glass, this stunning wine opens up to reveal classic Nebbiolo aromas of leather, tilled soil, underbrush, fragrant blue flower and ripe berry. The juicy concentrated palate dishes out layers of succulent black cherry, crushed raspberry, anise and pipe tobacco framed in firm, velvety tannins. Drink 2022–2035."

95 points Wine Spectator: "Sweet cherry and currant fruit combines with eucalyptus, tobacco, leather and tar flavors in this firm, sinewy red. In the traditional style, with plenty of underbrush, saline and tannic components, finishing long and savory. Best from 2019 through 2035. 510 cases made."
