The Cavallotto family claims sole ownership of the beautiful Bricco Boschis cru in the Castiglione Falletto district where they have been growing Nebbiolo since 1929 and bottling their own wine since 1948. Steadfast devotion to tradition combined with a high regard and respect for modern viticultural and winemaking techniques result in complex and elegant Baroli that are released for sale only when they have acquired perfect maturity.

The 2016 leaps from the glass with a heady perfume of red and black fruits, accentuated by notes of tobacco, liquorice and crushed rose petals. The warm midsummer gave rise to a depth of fruit that is expansive and generous but not cloying. The initial ripe fruit is supported by layers of spice, tar and mineral notes that give the wine structure and length. Though young, this is a relatively approachable Barolo.
