Cavallotto's 2015 Barbera d'Alba Superiore Vigna del Cuculo is a beautiful wine with well-controlled acidity and plump blackberry flavors. The wine presents a full and generous flavor profile with dense primary fruit and balanced flavors of savory spice and flint. Winemaking sees fermentation with semi-submerged caps and punch-downs for up to two weeks. The wine ages in large Slavonian casks in the family's ancient cellars for two years. Barbera from around the region shows fantastic results in the warm 2015 vintage. This wine is a prime example.
