2016 Cavallotto "Bricco Boschis" Barolo (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1486033 99 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Aromas of woodland berry, underbrush, hazelnut and camphor form the nose along with a whiff of rose petal on this captivating, delicious wine. The full-bodied structured palate is still young and primary but already shows raspberry compote, ripe Marasca cherry, star anise, tobacco and the barest hint of game. Tightly knit noble tannins and fresh acidity provide the firm frame and impart serious aging potential. Hold for even more complexity. *Cellar Selection* (KO) Inner quote mark (7/2020)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. (ML) Inner quote mark (7/2020)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark The core of cherry and currant is framed by notes of hay, eucalyptus and wild thyme, with a solid structure that leaves a dusty feel, offset by the sweet, ripe fruit. Balanced overall, this is built for the long haul. (BS) Inner quote mark (11/2020)

94 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Enticing aromas of soft roses and fresh thyme lead into an explosion of fruit, as flavors of juicy red cherry, pomegranate and blood orange surge forward on waves of brisk acidity. The wine’s energy and focus are immensely appealing, yet the tautly drawn tannins will benefit from some bottle age. Inner quote mark (12/2020)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Barolo Bricco Boschis is fabulous. Rich and pliant, with lovely mid-palate depth, the Bricco Boschis is a terrific introduction to the house style. There is plenty of the density that is such a Cavallotto signature, but the 2016 is also much more classic in feel than this wine has been in some time. Succulent red cherry, plum, mint, sweet tobacco, licorice and pine add layers of nuance to this expressive and inviting Barolo from Cavallotto. Best of all, the 2016 is already easy to drink and enjoy. The 2016 saw 32-34 days on the skins, followed by three years in cask. For this wine, Cavallotto used smaller casks of 50HL and a bit more new oak to help make the wine accessible young. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2020)
