    The Cavallotto 2011 Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppe is an exceptional wine that really shows the best of Castiglione Falletto, home to some of Barolo's most consistent and age-worthy wines. This bottle offers enormous complexity coupled by power and linear, classic lines. Maceration stopped at 20 days, otherwise the winemaking team feared the results would be overdone and too bold. The bouquet opens quickly to reveal dark fruit, spice, anise seed and licorice. The effect is ethereal and lasting. It would be hard to pin this wine down as being from the warm 2011 vintage in a blind tasting. The acidity is fresh and nicely folded into the background. 95/100. Date 2018-2035.

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.
