two weeks maceration, two years in botte, a bit younger and smaller sized than for Barolo This shows some caraway seed on the nose, and a little oxidation with some caramel like notes over sweet tart fruit. On entry one finds some fine grained tannins supporting nice plum fruit, along with solid acids that are not over the top but totally noticeable. This lacks some brightness of flavor, and is a bit earthy but there is nice richness to this, rustic, unusually tannic Barbera. The tannin is a little bit a trait of the soil in Bricco Boschis and this has a certain mintiness to it which I often find in the wines of cavallotto which might be terroir, or might be their native yeast. The finish is a bit dry here as well. 85pts
