Cavallotto, Barolo Bricco Boschis 2016
Laura, Giuseppe and Alfio Cavollotto
Shows all the characteristics of this classic growing season from the first perfumes to the finish. The nose is floral, with rose, violet and hibiscus elements framing dark cherry and raspberry notes. In the mouth, the calm, linear mouthfeel allows all the wines complex characteristics of reveal themselves: ripe, fresh cherries, liquorice, mineral notes, sweet tannins and a long, precise and fresh finish.
Traditional Barolo fermentation with manual punchdowns and pumpovers, and ageing in large old Slavonian barrels for around four years.
The Cavallotto family claims sole ownership of the beautiful Bricco Boschis cru in the Castiglione Falletto district where they have been growing Nebbiolo since 1929 and bottling their own wine since 1948. Steadfast devotion to tradition combined with a high regard and respect for modern viticultural and winemaking techniques result in complex and elegant Baroli that are released for sale only when they have acquired perfect maturity. The estate produces three Baroli: two riservas and their anything but �regular� Bricco Boschis.
