Cavallotto Barolo Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppe Riserva 2010 3L
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
The estate produces three Baroli: two riservas and a Bricco Boschis bottling. The Vignolo cru, sloping 60-80 meters lower in altitude than the adjacent Bricco Boschis holding, shows a 'creamy' flesh. This wine here is the estate's selection of the finest vineyard within the Bricco Boschis cru which is called San Giuseppe; it is considered the epitome of Castiglione Falletto...a powerful, majestic wine of absolute authority whose sweetness comes with time.
Wine SpectatorAn old-school style, this complex red features an array of cherry, berry, leather, tobacco and underbrush flavors, backed by a dense, beefy structure. Long and powerful, with a savory, saline aftertaste. Shows ample fruit up front, but should be better in two to three years. Best from 2019 through 2036. 550 cases made.
Wine AdvocateHere is a beautiful wine for the ages. The 2010 Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppe captures the timeless beauty and balance of the vintage with exuberance and authenticity. The wine makes a delicate but lasting impression on the senses with lingering tones of wild berry, licorice and white truffle. All the aromas are pegged to a concrete sense of place. There is a savory and warm side to the bouquet that builds in momentum. This is a very pretty wine that will embrace many long years of cellar aging. Drink 2018 - 2035
