The emblematic cru, solely owned by the Cavallotto family. Crafted from the Vigne Colle Sud-Ovest and Punta Marcello parcels of the Bricco Boschis. The vines for this cuvée average around 50 years old and their deep root systems really siphon the essence out of the Boschis’ complex clay and calcareous soils. The wine spends about 20 days on skins before being aged in Slovenian-oak casks of various sizes (all large) for three years and six months. A Barolo that builds in the glass to a glorious crescendo.
Barolo Bricco Boschis 2013 shows all the characteristics of the cool, classic growing season from the first perfumes to the finish. The nose is floral, with rose, violet and hibiscus elements framing dark cherry and raspberry notes. In the mouth, the calm, linear mouthfeel allows all the wines complex characteristics to reveal themselves: ripe, fresh cherries, licorice, mineral notes, sweet tannins and a long, precise and fresh finish.
The 2015 Barolo Bricco Boschis shows extreme elegance and finesse. These are the characteristics of what is surely one of the most beautiful vineyard sites in Barolo. The Bricco Boschis cru affords a panoramic view onto much of the Langhe, with snowcapped Alps in the background. Barolo from Castiglione Falletto tends to show characteristics that are very fine, precise and linear. That’s fundamentally what you get here despite the more exuberant and fleshy 2015 vintage. This wine is truly beautiful. Some 27,700 bottles were made.
