The 2011 Barolo Bricco Boschis shows those telltale characteristics of the vintage with resin, tar and licorice in center stage. Dark cherry, prune and blackberry follow in quick succession. It also delivers a gorgeous level of power and velvety intensity that distinguish Cavallotto's wines. I remember the 2010 edition of this wine was one of the most representational of the entire vintage. The same holds true for the 2011 Barolo Bricco Boschis with regards to this current vintage. ||You often see this winery listed as Cavallotto Tenuta Bricco Boschis. To stick with what consumers will read on the front label, I am simply listing it as Cavallotto. eRobertParker.com.June, 2015

“Cask sample. Pale crimson. Very beguiling nose with some treacle toffee quality. Scented and jewelly. Really rather subtle. Notably dry but not drying finish. Not one of the most intense - and it doesn’t actually taste as though it came from a hot vintage, but it’s beautifully balanced. 14.5%. Drink 2017-2029.”

“Very punchy and powerful on the nose. A touch of graphite, and some sweet fruit. Purity again, and that distinct Cavallotto breeding – it’s slightly Latour-esque in that this is a wine that knows how good it is. Aristocratic. All with an elegant polish. This is delicate and delicious, balanced and correct. Very good.”

Cavallotto is a family owned and operated Italian wine producer in the Piemonte region. The family are the sole owners of the Bricco Bosschis cru in the Castiglione Falletto district, from which they produce a Barolo and two Barolo Riservas. The Cavallotto family have been growing Nebbiolo since 1929 and bottling their own under the Cavallotto label since 1948. The winery philosophy is to maintain a traditional style of Barolo through the use of modern viticultural and winemaking practices, never releasing a wine until it has matured perfectly. The wines are highly acclaimed and consistently receive 90+ scores from Robert Parker’s wine advocate and Antonio Galloni. “Cavallotto may very well be the greatest Barolo producer few people have ever heard of, something that continues to mystify me. Truth is, it isn’t just the Barolos here that are impressive, the entry-level wines are every bit as delicious and well-priced…Readers who appreciate a firm, classic style of Barolo will want to spend some time getting to know Cavallotto.” -Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate and Vinous Media
