The wine with which Cavallotto are most associated with is the Barolo Bricco Boschis. Crafted from the Vigne Colle Sud-Ovest and Punta Marcello parcels of the cru, this is stunning Barolo with the perfume of raspberry, rosemary and dried plum. The classically tannin structure is offset by a core of densely woven, velveteen fruit. The wine spends about 20 days on skins before being aged in Slovenian-oak casks of various sizes for 3 years and 6 months.
"Capturing the freshness and finesse of the vintage, this has classic varietal aromas of rose petal, forest berry, camphor and underbrush. Reflecting the nose, the vibrant, focused palate delivers ripe red cherry, crushed raspberry, wild mint and star anise set against taut, refined tannins. Bright acidity keeps it balanced. While you won't have to wait years before enjoying this, it will also age at least another decade or more. Best 2024–2033. "

“The Cavallotto 2018 Barolo Bricco Boschis (a certified organic wine) is a lovely expression with fruit from one of the most beautiful sites in Castiglione Falletto, measuring 7.3 hectares. The wine is streamlined and tight with forest berry, blackcurrant and spice. It is taut and silky, showing fruit that has been shaped by cool nights and warm days. Bricco Boschis always delivers a special sense of sharpness and focus. Production is 23,747 bottles.”

“Castiglione Falletto. A blend of several samples taken from the most representative casks, although there will be a part of San Giuseppe blended in. 'With large oak casks the wines can differ so much between them.' Lustrous mid ruby with an orange tinge. Generous deep nose of beautiful ripe fruit. Lifted and vibrant fruit on the attack, long and concentrated but maintaining impeccable elegance. Gorgeous ripe, intense, tactile tannins like a carpet rolled out for the vibrant fruit.”
