2013 cavallotto, barolo, bricco boschis

Why We're Buying

Cavallotto Bricco Boschis has a distinctive floral and perfumed nose. That inviting bouquet parlays into a full body built around a core of red cherries and red currants. Thyme, tobacco, rose petals, anise, and sandalwood frame this Barolo, providing the structure and complexity necessary for long-term cellaring. Wine critic Kerin O'Keefe gave the 2016 vintage a 99-point rating and called it a must-have for any cellar.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

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. (ML) 96+
