The Piedmont history of Cavallotto began in 1929, when family patriarchs laid down roots in the region. By the 1940s they began estate bottling, and the world soon beat a path to their doors. Flanking the grand Cru of Monprivato in Castiglione Faletto, the family purchased every acre of the Bricco Boschis cru, sole owners to this day. Hindsight being 20/20, one imagines how many families wish they could have been there in time to gain ahold of just a sliver of this precious Cru.
Amazingly, Cavallotto maintains a relatively low profile. Perhaps it's due to their small production, perhaps their limited amount of exports. Galloni once famously commented, "Cavallotto may very well be the greatest Barolo producer few people have ever heard of, something that continues to mystify me." Note the excellent, classically styled Dolcetto and Barbera.
