Cavallotto Barolo Bricco Boschis 2010
Wine EnthusiastLeather, balsamic herbs, black fruit and spice aromas lead the nose. The delicious palate delivers ripe black cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice, cinnamon, black pepper and carob notes, balanced by bold but noble tannins and vibrant acidity. It needs years to fully develop and will age for decades. Drink 2020-2040.
Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Barolo Bricco Boschis is the flagship wine from this historic estate in Castiglione Falletto. The personality here is dark and brooding with savory aromas of cured meat and smoked bacon in a leading role. The intensity is bright and vibrant and the longer you contemplate the wine, the more it offers. Following a few swirls of the glass, you encounter sweet cherry, white almond skin, licorice and pressed rose. Still young, the wine shows enormous complexity. Its balanced structure and acidity would pair next to succulent lamb chops or any number of sophisticated meat recipes. Drink: 2016-2026.
Wine SpectatorWild, woodsy aromas of eucalyptus and juniper mark this muscular red. The rugged tannins set the pace, framing the cherry fruit and coating the gums on the finish. Stays long and energetic, with a mineral essence in the aftertaste. Best from 2018 through 2035. 2,000 cases made.
