Reviews & Scores

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.

REGION

Piedmont, Italy

The Italian word "Piedmont" means at the foot of the mountains, and indeed the whole region is dominated by the Alps to the north and the west. Piedmont is home to the largest area of vines which produce DOC and DOCG wines, and the region boasts over 40 denominations. The most well known wines from Piedmont include Barolo and Barbaresco, made from the Nebbiolo grape, and Asti Spumante, made from the Moscato grape. Nebbiolo is the undisputed king of the grape varieties in Piedmont but you should not ignore the lovely reds from the indigenous Dolcetto or Barbera, nor indeed the best examples of international varieties and of course the wonderful local whites, most particular the resurgent Arneis. We are honoured to represent two maestros of Piedmont - Angelo Gaja and Bruno Giacosa.
