Review

Produced since 1948, Cavallotto's Bricco Boschis of is one of the symbols of the Barolo from Castiglione Falletto, so much so that the owners wanted to adopt it as the company's name. The approximately 6 hectares grown by Alfio, Giuseppe and Laura Cavallotto organically have excellent southern exposure, between the South-East and South-West, in a beautiful amphitheatre which rises to about 350 metres above sea level, typically Langhe-style, planted around 1971.

At the top of the amphitheatre stands the family home, the company headquarters. The stylistic scaffolding at Cavallotto is based on tradition, with great Nebbiolo that acquires personality and emotional character over time, supported by warmth, tannin and breadth from when it is young. Memories of liquorice and mineral notes are the most sincere and profound representation of the Cavallotto terroir, and which are found in its sumptuousness.

Dark and compact, Bricco Boschis is certainly one of these, and expresses a rich and generous aroma, with hints of roots, undergrowth, berries, nutmeg, liquorice and jams. On the palate it is ample and vigorous, warm and soft in its impact, with typical, elegant tannins. Fermentation takes place in a natural way, without selected yeasts, and aging is carried out according to the principles of tradition, in large oak barrels for up to 48-60 months, followed by a further 6 months or a year in the bottle.

Excellent Barolo year 2013

Cavallotto Barolo Bricco Boschis is a Barolo made in the traditional way ( just like Pio Cesare, which I bought a little while ago). I bought three bottles of this four star Barolo year 2013, which I will keep for some more years to let them mature and develop.

Ottimo barolo dal buon rapporto qualità prezzo

Davvero un ottimo Barolo - decisamente ancora giovane, ma lascia già intravvedere un grande potenziale evolutivo. Per ora il bouquet è principamente orientato sulle spezie, con un bel frutto rosso croccante in sottofondo. Grande persistenza - da aspettare almeno 4-6 anni

Bon Barolo

Une des références pour le Barolo (avec Pio Cesare qui est plus léger/soyeux) et un chouchou des critiques. A garder encore quelques années en cave.
