Cavallotto Bricco Boschis Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

$67.95

Cavallotto is on a roll with some very impressive new releases. The 2013 Barolo Bricco Boschis is a tremendous effort that has an edge on the excellent 2010 vintage in my view. The wine shows a beautifully exuberant but elegant bouquet with the ethereal and undertone fruit and spice aromas you get with Nebbiolo. Although the wine is never overdone, it does show silky persistence and a long finish that comes from the noble nature of the tannins and the wine's textural finesse. Yet, it is playfully deceiving in a way because behind that polished grace, it delivers impressive depth and power. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Darren Dittrich Delectable Pro

Expensive ($60-90ish depending on your location) but worth it. Young at 6 years after harvest, but better the 2nd day. Not even the slightest perceptible flaw, this is a bright sour cherry Barolo that will certainly improve with time in bottle. Changes in the glass over time, this is a balanced traditionally-produced bottle.

Tasted via Coravin as part of Capital Grille's by the glass program. Bright, plenty of energy, red fruits and minerals. Sustains on the palate, decent complexity. Good acidity makes it food friendly.

Tasted from cask at Cavallotto. Nose smells a bit unfinished, but deep with dark fruit and a bit of funk. Smooth with quite strong but relatively well integrated tannins, excellent acid, and a long finish. Would love to try in 5-10 years.

Loved this at tastings, less convinced now - maybe in an awkward phase. Dark and more evolved bricking than I would have guessed. Bitter cherry taste, needs time?

Starts rather tight and tarry, but slowly opens to reveal serious complexity and beautiful fruit depth

Aromas were pinched by stubborn reduction that remained in the background after hours of exposure to air. Just ok.

Should have had a proper decanter or Waited like 5 years to pop this one. Magnum bottle. Fine grained, long finish, dark fruit, weightless in the mouth. Pleasant but way too young unless you are to decant for a solid 2 hours
