2010 Cavallotto Barolo Bricco Boschis

It's hard not to be wowed by the 2010 Barolos.

The wines are so beautifully pure, balanced and fine.

Today, we focus on one of Barolo's perennial values and one of the great values of 2010,

Cavallottos are classic Barolos that blossom in the cellar. Antonio Galloni sums it up nicely when he writes, "Cavallotto may very well be the greatest Barolo producer few people have ever heard of, something that continues to mystify me."

Bricco Boschis is a monopole of Cavallotto and sits just north of the famous Monprivato (one of the greatest sites in all of the Piedmont) and produces muscular wines of incredible balance; pure fruit wrapped around a firm and powerful core.

In 2010, Bricco Boschis really shines in all its density and aromatics. The 2010 manages to show a saturating depth with complex top notes of flowers, spice and dark fruits. The hallmark energy and transparency of 2010 is on bold display.

"Simply put, 2010 is the greatest young Barolo vintage I have tasted," writes Antonio Galloni. The vintage is undeniably special. For lovers of Barolo, this is a don't miss. It's nice to be able to offer a wine at this caliber and at this price.
