Cavallotto Barolo Bric 2000

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This on the other hand is still open and reveals a bit of fudgy, lushly ripe fruits on the nose married to ripe herbs though it is a bit hot. Big and blowsy in the mouth this is fleshy yet lacks some definition at this point. Quite tannic on the back end turned hard and tight on the finish, this closes up in the glass. A bit harder to get a read on at this stage but lacks the balance of the 1999 90pts

HISTORY On the periphery of the Castiglione Falletto township, centre of the Barolo area, crowning the Bricco Boschis hill, one comes upon the Tenuta Vitivinicola Cavallotto (the Cavallotto Vineyards) of 25 hectares of which 23 spread of vineyards. Cavallotto Estate has been in the family for five generations and in 1948, the brothers Olivio and Gildo, who were continuing the work of their grandfather Giacomo, their father Giuseppe and their uncle Marcello, became the first people of the area to dedicate themselves to the production and trading of wines. These wines were obtained solely from the grapes of their own vineyards. Olivio's offspring, Laura, Giuseppe, and Alfio continue to produce wine which is made exclusively from the estate's grapes and from the transformation of these they obtain DOC and DOCG: Barolo, Dolcetto d'Alba, Barbera d'Alba, Nebbiolo Langhe, Freisa Langhe, Grignolino Piedmonte, Pinot Langhe, Chardonnay Langhe. VINEYARDS The vineyards of the Bricco Boschis estate extend over 23 hectares of which about half is given over to Nebbiolo vines for Barolo wine. The remaining part is sub-divided into Dolcetto, Barbera, Freisa, Grignolino and since 1989 Chardonnay and Pinot Nero vines. The Nebbiolo vines for Barolo wine can be found in two historical zones of the Castiglione Falletto commune: Bricco Boschis which is the seat of the wine cellar and the Vignolo zone. Bricco Boschis was sub-divided by the family in 1961 into three vineyards: San Giuseppe, Colle Sudovest, Punta Marcello. ESTATE The Cavallotto Estate extends to the east over the Bricco Boschis vineyards which are right behind the 1800 farmhouse. In the central body of the building, which is not underground, you can see the space assigned to the fermentation. The freshly harvested grapes are separated from their stalks and are steeped and fermented in stainless steel wine vats which contain hl 100 at a controlled temperature. The maturing of Barolo, Barbera and a part of the Dolcetto takes place in Slavonic oak barrels of 10, 30, 50, 80, 100 hl. Read less

classic profile mushroom, leather dried cherries, and chocolate. Stiff tannins. Not for drinking now and not on par w the 99, but a nice bottle

The nose is big and brooding with dark red licorice, rose petal, orange marmalade and a combination of things that i can best describe as sauerbraten sauce. On the palate it is full bodied with vibrant acidity, showing sour raspberry fruit, rosemary, tar and clove. The finish is long with cranberry fruit and silky tannin. Gorgeous.
