Tasting Notes

Cavallotto is on a roll with some very impressive new releases. The 2013 Barolo Bricco Boschis is a tremendous effort that has an edge on the excellent 2010 vintage in my view. The wine shows a beautifully exuberant but elegant bouquet with the ethereal and undertone fruit and spice aromas you get with Nebbiolo. Although the wine is never overdone, it does show silky persistence and a long finish that comes from the noble nature of the tannins and the wine's textural finesse. Yet, it is playfully deceiving in a way because behind that polished grace, it delivers impressive depth and power. Drink 2019-2040.

New leather, menthol, woodland berry, dark spice and a whiff of pressed rose petal are just some of the scents you'll find on this radiant red. Vibrant and loaded with finesse, the structured palate delivers juicy Maraca cherry, cranberry, white pepper, star anise and a hint of pipe tobacco while youthfully taut noble tannins and firm acidity provide an age-worthy framework. It's already stunning but needs time to develop to its full potential. Drink 2023–2043.

Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast, January 2017

This is packed with sweet cherry, currant, floral and spice flavors. The vivid acidity drives the intensity, while dense tannins lend support. This will take some time to harmonize, but should be well
worth the wait. Best from 2022 through 2040

Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator Insider, February 2018

Castiglione Falletto. Cask sample. Tasted blind. Quite deep ruby for Nebbiolo. Firmly closed on the nose, and sweet and monolithic on the palate. Bags of stalky tannins and loads of sweet ripe fruit. Quite massive for the moment.
