“99 point Barolo "Cellar Selection"”

"A stunning, brilliant vintage." Vinous

By David Gettenberg

Last Call!

We are down to the last few cases of Cavallotto's blockbuster Barolo "Bricco Boschis." 

I enjoyed this wine a few days ago (my second time since its release) and it is phenomenal.  

This big-time Barolo received the coveted "Cellar Selection" and 99 points from the Wine Enthusiast.

It is both grand and polished, a rare combination in a young Nebbiolo (the grape in both Barolo and Barbaresco). 

An ethereal nose with aromas of fresh raspberry, violet, pipe tobacco, leather, forest floor, crushed cherry, plum, dried spice, and eucalyptus.  Vibrant tannins and bright acidity offer perfect balance to the fruit.  The wine is pure finesse and elegance - rare for a young Barolo.  It is a fantastic expression from this beautiful vintage. 

In 2016, Piedmont experienced "a stunning, brilliant vintage."  Vinous

This is our second feature from 2016 Piedmont.  The first was Gaja's historic 2016 Barbaresco, which is nearly sold out and can still be enjoyed here.

Without question, premier wines from 2016 Barolo and Barbaresco should have representation in your collection!  "This is an outstanding vintage, one with great varietal purity, impressive structure and wonderful cellar potential." Forbes

Extremely limited.

Press & Tasting Notes

“A whiff of rose petal on this captivating, delicious wine.”

Wine Enthusiast • 99 / 100

"Cellar Selection • Aromas of woodland berry, underbrush, hazelnut and camphor form the nose along with a whiff of rose petal on this captivating, delicious wine. The full-bodied structured palate is still young and primary but already shows raspberry compote, ripe Marasca cherry, star anise, tobacco and the barest hint of game. Tightly knit noble tannins and fresh acidity provide the firm frame and impart serious aging potential. Hold for even more complexity."

“A slightly wild and untamed character.”

Wine Advocate • 98 / 100

"All of these wines from Cavallotto deliver a very floral and perfumed subtext that gives lift and delicate buoyancy to the overall bouquet. This is the Castiglione Falletto magic that shows so well in this classic vintage. The 2016 Barolo Bricco Boschis offers dried cherry, sandalwood, bramble and forest floor. The wine reveals a slightly wild and untamed character that adds to its interest and personality. Overall, this is an elegant wine with a streamlined and elegant finish. The aromas are focused and bright. I can't wait to taste the Riserva expression from this site when it is released in three years' time."
