Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, March 2009

    Bricco Boschis is the Cavallotto's flagship Barolo which is always an impressive wine. Ripe in dark and flavours, the 2005 displays an elegant, velvety palate of concentrated black cherry flavours, brown sugar and blood orange. A refined finish leads to a savoury finish.

    Cavallotto's 2005 Barolo Bricco Boschis is one of the stars of the vintage. It possesses gorgeousdepth and striking overall balance. Dark cherries, smoke, tobacco and new leather are some of the notes that flow from this beautifully crafted, extroverted Barolo. The 2005 is just beginning to develop additional complexity in its bouquet. This is one of the few cases where I preferred the 2005 to the 2006. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030. Cavallotto has been on a tear of late. This year I tasted a number of exceptional wines from this small, family-run property. In particular, readers should keep an eye out for the estate's 2005s.Late flowering that year reduced the crop by nearly 50% and resulted in a set of huge, powerful wines that are atypical for the vintage and that should age exquisitely over the coming years.

Producer

Cavallotto

If we could spend an entire day at one Piedmont estate, it would have to be Cavallotto. Perched onthe slopes of Castiglione Falletto, it overlooks the lush Barolo landscape and houses a botanicalgarden featuring rare species of plants and trees. Though the idyllic surroundings are reason enough to linger, the wines that they produce from their 23 hectares of organically grown vines (the first in the region to follow organic methods), are most definitely another.Alfio and Giuseppe Cavallotto rely on a ‘hands off ' approach using mostly large Botti which allowthe wines to breathe and develop naturally without additional oak extraction. The results areexquisite and their offerings make up some of the most elegant, complex Italian wines on our list.Tasting with Alfio on our last trip enhanced our enthusiasm for this wonderful estate even further- a feat that we did not think possible.

Region

Barolo

With Brunello in Tuscany, Barolo is undoubtedly Italy's finest wine producing region. Located in Piedmont in the north west of Iataly Barolo is comprised of 5 major communes - Barolo, Monteforte d'Alba, La Morra, Castiglione Falletto and Serralunga d'Alba - though the latter three tend to represent the main styles of the region. The wines are compelling and polished - an exemplary expression of the Nebbiolo grape. DOCG law requires a minimum ageing of 2 years in cask or barrel yet can be longer depending on the producer. Barolos are generally released four or more years after the vintage.
