he drought conditions of 2017 made life difficult for Nebbiolo, but our very deep-rooted plants never went into hydric stress and were able to mature without the dried, cooked berry flavors associated with such dry and hot conditions. The nose shows the typical character of red cherries and raspberry. The floral elements, accompanied by notes of fresh-cut hay, are not as distinct in warm years. The palate has good fruit character and the slightly rough tannins that are the calling card of hot vintages. The finish is nicely dry with a minerally smoothness. This wine finds its best matches at the table, with appetizers of sliced meats such as prosciutto or salami; also Alba beef tartare and vitello tonnato. The wine is also good with pasta, simple red meat dishes in general, or with seasoned cheeses.

With rose potpourri and dried rose, the Cavallotto 2017 Langhe Nebbiolo offers a light and accessible expression of the grape. The bouquet reveals cranberry, cassis and dried raspberry. This is a long and accessible wine to pair with a dish that involves cheese or cream. The tannins are nicely integrated and silky.

A rich, smooth style, with a core of plum and cherry fruit, shaded by vanilla and toasty oak accents. Firms up on the finish, yet remains balanced overall. Drink now through 2023.
