Cavallotto Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppe 2016


Sold Out

“A certified organic wine, the Cavallotto 2016 Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppe is born in vineyards on a beautiful ridge in Castiglione Falletto with wide views of both the sunrise and the sunset. From this magical site at the heart of the Barolo appellation comes a wine that represents the very best of vintage and territory. Dark fruit, dried cherry, wild plum, rose and iron ore meet a perfect intersection that gives this Barolo a beautiful sense of balance and inner energy. Fruit comes from a 2.4-hectare plot with southwest-facing vines that are 60 years old. After destemming, the grapes see 28 days of skin contact (semi-submerged caps) in steel tanks. Secondary fermentation occurs in cement in the spring following the harvest. The wine is aged in Slavonian oak for 60 months. Production is 8,794 bottles and other larger formats. Drink: 2025-2055. 98 points

Alfio Cavallotto and his family have farmed organically since 1976. In 2008, they started to reduce the use of copper, finally eliminating it by 2013, thereby cleaning the soils of metal buildup. These are excellent wines from a unique position. Bricco Boschis is located at the center of the Barolo growing region, and it links the eastern part of the appellation (Serralunga d’Alba and Monforte d’Alba) to the western side (where La Morra and Barolo are found).”
