100% Nebbiolo

"The Barolo Bricco Boschis 2019 is a great Barolo and Alfio Cavallotto rates it alongside the 2016 as one of his best vintages. We totally agree. Bottled in February 2023 this wine is crafted from the Vigne Colle Sud-Ovest and Punta Marcello parcels of the cru plus includes 30% of the San Giuseppe plot of old vines. This is stunning Barolo with richness, amazing palate weight and perfectly woven acidity and tannins. The final integration of these components will be splendid to revisit at 10 years of age. The wine has been aged in Slovenian-oak casks of various sizes for 3 years and 6 months. Tasted at the Estate September 2023."

This estate is certainly the most prolific interpreter of the hilltop Bricco Boschis MGA in Castiglione Falletto. The Cavallotto 2019 Barolo Bricco Boschis (a certified organic wine) would benefit from more time in the bottle. I encountered many Barolos in 2019 that reveal a slightly reductive approach that bodes well for long cellaring. This wine is characterized by velvety black fruit that is framed by dusty nuances of crushed limestone. It builds focus and precision with more time in the glass. Some 18,800 bottles were released.”

Mid to deep ruby with orange tinges. Very compact nose of raspberry coulis with salty hints underneath. Very pretty, aromatic raspberry palate with firm, underlying tannins but this is still in cask and will need substantial time once this is in bottle. Energetic acidity tied to the fruit. Very complete and with an impressive, focused raspberry finish that can only be counted in light years. Very tannic at the moment. 2026-2040.”

“Alfio Cavallotto is one of the most traditional producers in Langhe. His winemaking is not only classic but old-fashioned: indigenous yeast, oak fermentation, almost no temperature control, and long maceration with submerged cap. His wines are dark and concentrated and this 2019 is no different. Earthy and smoky, it has dark cherry and blood orange aromas alongside plenty of dried fruits. There's firm acidity to the fore, as well as firm tannins, with great mid-palate extraction. There's ome stickiness on the gums now so it comes across as very austere at the moment, but it's very good on the finish. This deserves more time in bottle and consumers who appreciate the style. 2024-2045.”
