Tasting Notes

All of these wines from Cavallotto deliver a very floral and perfumed subtext that gives lift and delicate buoyancy to the overall bouquet. This is the Castiglione Falletto magic that shows so well in this classic vintage. The 2016 Barolo Bricco Boschis offers dried cherry, sandalwood, bramble and forest floor. The wine reveals a slightly wild and untamed character that adds to its interest and personality. Overall, this is an elegant wine with a streamlined and elegant finish. The aromas are focused and bright. I can't wait to taste the Riserva expression from this site when it is released in three years' time. 2024-2045

Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, July 2020

Wow. Lots of raisins and concentrated jammy fruit on the nose - like a strawberry compote. Smells delicious. There is a huge structure behind this wine but it never feels overpowering because the fruit is so dense and rich that it hangs comfortably like a thick jacket on a coat stand. At no point is this cloying, as there is a huge amount of freshness provided by the high acidity. Serious, complex and decadent. A real treat.
