The Cavallotto family claims sole ownership of the beautiful Bricco Boschis cru in the Castiglione Falletto district (also home to Scavino and Azelia), where they have been growing Nebbiolo since 1929, and bottling their own wine since 1948. These richly structured wines place emphasis on elegance and longevity, attributable to excellent vineyards in the Bricco Boschis and Vignolo crus and traditional long maturation in large Slovenian oak. Steadfast devotion to tradition combined with a high regard and respect for modern viticultural and vinification techniques result in complex and elegant Baroli that are released for sale only when they have acquired a perfect mature harmony; often the release date falls much later than those of other producers.

Wine SpectatorA rich, dense version, with power and beefy tannins supporting the cherry, wild herb, eucalyptus and tea notes. This is tight and bursting with latent energy, so give it more time. Shows excellent length and resonance on the finish, which hints at the ultimate potential here. Best from 2018 through 2036. 692 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastLayered fragrances recall rose, violet, perfumed berry, leather, tilled earth and baking spices. The delineated palate delivers juicy Morello cherry, white and black pepper, cinnamon and herb alongside firm but velvety tannins and vibrant acidity. Give it time to develop complexity. Drink 2018-2038.
