Cavallotto Nebbiolo Barolo Bricco Boschis 2005

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

AWE blind tasting - savory, wild raspberry liquor, clay, brushfire, deep for the vintage, slight herbal notes some spicy strawberry seeds, touch of bitter almond, a bit chewy, nice fruit tones, a bit black raspberry, nice mineral note, fresh, wild cherry on the mp, subtle but with nice complicating notes of sandalwood, a hint of caraway, dark spice tones, fairly complete if a touch chunky, nice finish, lots of fruit tannin, a bit spicy, more bitter almond on the finish, should improve, 89-90

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

Very sweet on the nose with subtle cherry fruit and notes of peach, dried citrus peel, candied fruit and candied licorice. On the palate you can feel the fruit tannins that give this a big, rich and slightly chewy texture. The fruit is red and yet a bit roasted giving it a strawberry jam tone that offers up soft accents of licorice with a bit of clay earthy adding firmness on the finish. This comes off fairly soft and gentle but well-balanced. 88pts.

Ruby red at the core with slight garnet reflections, this intense Barolo has an ethereal nose, with powerful aromas of dried fruit, jam, licorice, and violet. A rich, full-bodied wine, it is warm and quite soft, with evident but ripe and sweet tannins.
