Cavallotto 2016 'Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppe' Barolo Riserva, Piedmont, Italy

Farming: Certified Organic 

Winemaker/Chef du Cave: Giuseppe Cavallotto 

Established in 1948, Cavallotto was one of the first families of the area to bottle. The family farms one contiguous hiil, Bricco Boschis, in Castiglione Falletto. They are the sole owners of this hill and the only ones to bottle Bricco Boschis. The Cavallotto’s are firm believers in organic farming, they worked with the local university to develop methods that worked for their particular climate. They no longer use copper or sulfur in the vineyard, opting for essential oils of grapefruit seed and other less intrusive remedies to treat the vineyard. 

Grape Varieties: Nebbiolo

Terroir:  The Bricco Boschis cru shows an extraordinary mix of white, yellow and grey marls, punctuated by layers of sand. The mix of soils gives the wine from this cru characteristics from both the east and west subzones of Barolo.

Vinification/Oak Usage: A selection of the best parcel of Bricco Boschis, macerated for up to a month and aged in large oak barrels for 3-4 years.

Tasting Note: classic fruit notes (wild strawberries, red-currants) combined with other botanicals (tobacco, sandalwood, licorice, hints of spices like cinnamon), with beautiful balance. The tannins are there, but they make the wine savory and they are not bitter
