Cavallotto Barolo Bricco Boschis 2018
Classic, stunning and beautifully perfumed, full bodied Barolo made as a blend of grapes grown on the Vigne Colle Sud-Ovest and Punta Marcello vineyards.
The wine spends about 20 days on skins before being aged in Slovenian-oak casks of various sizes for 3 years and 6 months.
"Capturing the freshness and finesse of the vintage, this has classic varietal aromas of rose petal, forest berry, camphor and underbrush. Reflecting the nose, the vibrant, focused palate delivers ripe red cherry, crushed raspberry, wild mint and star anise set against taut, refined tannins. Bright acidity keeps it balanced. While you won't have to wait years before enjoying this, it will also age at least another decade or more. Best 2024?2033. "
