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.
Medium-structured yet soft with typical aromas such as cherries and other fruits with a complex, floral bouquet. Although it is made to be drunk young, it still has aging potential for up to 5 years.
