Cavallotto Barolo Riserva Vigna San Giuseppe Bricco Boschis 1997
Editorial Reviews for Cavallotto Barolo Riserva Vigna San Giuseppe Bricco Boschis
From magnum. Wow this explodes from the glass with tons of fruit, a compte of pear, strawberry and cherry greatly enhanced with notes of nettle, smoke, and limestone rich earth. Big and rich entry with a touch of pruniness up front that leads to a round, ripe midpalate full of dark plum tinged fruit. Remains rich and layered with spice and smoke notes lifted apon bright acidity and ripe tannins. The finish shows that the wine could use some time to smooth out some of the roughness as the plush and chewy midpalate does turn a touch drying and lean on the finish. Pretty classicly styled and due to improve. Drink 2012-2025
Lovely light brick red in the glass with orange hues the wine had a smokey nose, some great fruit and a refined and complex character. The mouth feel is what will blow you away, silky with beautiful tannins and a powerful finish. Surprisingly fruity on the mid palate but a wine of real quality, complete and complex.

Cavallotto produces traditional Barolos and the San Giuseppe Riserva is the star of their stable. Coming from a strict selection of only the finest fruit from this southwest facing vineyard. 1997 was a very warm year producing opulent and exotic wines with unusually early appeal. None the less this wine will continue to improve in the cellar for decades.
