2006 Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppe, Cavallotto, Piedmont

If comparisons are to be made between the Cavallotto wines and those of great Burgundy, then it’s the San Giuseppe Riserva that’s waving the Chambertin-flag. The 2006 Riservas are the best wines to be produced from this estate yet and the San Giuseppe, with its lifted, floral elegance to match the sheer staying-power of this wine is one of the best hidden gems of the vintage. Wild strawberries, damsons, lavender, coffee and cured meats on the nose with a beautifully-soft texture to follow on the palate.

2006 Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppe, Cavallotto, Piedmont
Cavallotto

The Cavallotto family home can be found right in the heart of their vineyard called Bricco Boschis. From here they produce some of the greatest Barolos. Siblings Giuseppe, Laura and Alfio are now in charge and while their wines continue to be traditional expressions of Nebbiolo, the Cavallottos have always been trailblazers in other ways. They are some of the first to experiment with organic viticulture, and to bottle and sell their own wines, rather than work through a merchant.
