2006 Cavallotto "Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppe" Barolo Riserva (3L) (cracked capsule)

SKU #1515800 96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2006 Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppe literally bristles with tons of pure energy and class. Freshly cut flowers, violets, mint and plums all burst from the glass in this deeply expressive, powerful Barolo. Tar, licorice, smoke and incense all develop in the glass, adding further gravitas to this already dark, layered, hulking Riserva. Readers will have to be exceedingly patient here! (AG) Inner quote mark (5/2013)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2006 Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppe is a cool, inward wine. It boasts striking power and masses of fruit in an implosive style that will require many years to show at its best. The 2006 is all about sheer energy, power and muscle. Layers of fruit begin to flesh out on the muscular finish, but the 2006 San Giuseppe remains in an embryonic stage of its development. Readers will need to be patient. This is another totally impeccable wine from the Cavallotto brothers. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2036. (AG) Inner quote mark (6/2012)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Cherry, currant, black tea and tobacco flavors permeate this medium-weight red, with a distinct earthy note. Balanced and long, with refined texture, this features firm, dusty tannins on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2029. (BS) Inner quote mark (9/2013)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Pale ruby with orange tinges. Wonderful concentration of sweet cherry fruit, graphite and orange peel. Has everything in spades: acidity, tannins and fine ripe fruit. Elegantly built. So very young and yet hard to resist. But should be allowed time to unfold itself. 18/20 points. (WS) Inner quote mark (11/2013)
