Cavallotto Barolo Riserva Vigna San Giuseppe Bricco Boschis 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

95 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 2001 Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppe is simply captivating. Made in a dark, brooding style, it reveals a deeply layered personality that marries richness to depth, with generous tar, smoke, menthol, spices and sweet black cherries. It may very well be the finest Barolo Cavallotto has ever made, and it is not to be missed. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2026.

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

Average age of the vines 45-50 years 30 day maceration Deep high toned nose with tobacco, wet cigar, cigar ash, laurel to menthol top note, closes up in glass 2+ Dense and layered in the mouth with bright juicy acids and very fine tannins with just the slightest drying edge 2+ Dark and earthy at first but the superb core of fruit manages to break through for moments of brilliance with excellent complexity slightly on the medicinal end of the spectrum, menthol, licorice, angelica root and quinine all frame to dark fruit, still very reticent 3 Tough on the finish and drying a bit this is built for the long haul and the imposing structure is really architecturally beautiful and supports a savory finish of imposing length 3+ 2016-2036 92pts

The nose showed deep, rich red fruits, poppy and menthol with a zesty, almost tropical note of tangerine. On the palate, it was velvety and rich with sweet, spiced red fruits. The finish was intense, structured and long. This wine is just starting to drink well but could use a few more years. A must have!

Dark and intriguing in the glass, not showing much change in tonality at the edge of the glass, the wine looks fantastic and young. On the nose the wine has a far more generous expression than expected with a great spicy, smokey quality as well as a dried fruit mix, some plummy action, crushed cherries there too. The wine was a brute force on the palate, a real knock out expression but wonderfully structured and complex, the tannins were very soft and the aftertaste long and supple. This wine is a charming mix of flavours, power and subtlety that evolves intriguingly with every hour. An absolute pleasure and a wine to be contemplated.
