95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Pressed rose, sunbaked earth, aromatic herb, new leather, balsamic notes and a whiff of game are just some of the aromas you'll find on this multifaceted red. The full-bodied palate boasts structure and personality, delivering dried Marasca cherry, blood orange, star anise and tobacco set against a backbone of firm noble tannins. Drink 2022–2032."
Tasted thrice already, Vignolo follows its tradition of showing the more immediately expressive side of Cavallotto Riservas. The '12 Vigno is beautiful, deep, and a must-have for Barolo fans.
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. - Marcus
