2010 Cavallotto "Bricco Boschis" Barolo (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1475244 98 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Leather, balsamic herbs, black fruit and spice aromas lead the nose. The delicious palate delivers ripe black cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice, cinnamon, black pepper and carob notes, balanced by bold but noble tannins and vibrant acidity. It needs years to fully develop and will age for decades. Drink 2020–2040. *Cellar Selection* (KO) Inner quote mark (10/2014)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2010 Barolo Bricco Boschis is the flagship wine from this historic estate in Castiglione Falletto. The personality here is dark and brooding with savory aromas of cured meat and smoked bacon in a leading role. The intensity is bright and vibrant and the longer you contemplate the wine, the more it offers. Following a few swirls of the glass, you encounter sweet cherry, white almond skin, licorice and pressed rose. Still young, the wine shows enormous complexity. Its balanced structure and acidity would pair next to succulent lamb chops or any number of sophisticated meat recipes. Drink: 2016-2026. (ML) Inner quote mark (6/2014)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Sweet rose petals, hard candy, cinnamon, mint and new leather open up in the 2010 Barolo Bricco Boschis. Sweet, layered and exceptionally polished, the 2010 is a superb example of the year. At the same time, there is more than enough fleshiness to allow the 2010 to drink well with just a few more years in bottle. Expressive floral and spiced notes reappear on the finish. This is one of the best young vintages of the Bricco Boschis I can remember tasting. (AG) Inner quote mark (3/2015)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Wild, woodsy aromas of eucalyptus and juniper mark this muscular red. The rugged tannins set the pace, framing the cherry fruit and coating the gums on the finish. Stays long and energetic, with a mineral essence in the aftertaste. Best from 2018 through 2035. 2,000 cases made. (BS) Inner quote mark (4/2015)

90-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark (aged in Slavonian oak botti): Deep red with ruby highlights. Wild, reduced aromas of black fruits, roast coffee and flinty minerality; extremely primary. Dense, chewy and ripe, with youthfully backward flavors of musky black raspberry and minerals. Evolving very slowly in cask. (ST) Inner quote mark (11/2013)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Bags of fruit and just the start of complexity – sweet baking spice and cigar box as it opens. Closed down on the palate with the fruit compressed between the fine, dry tannins but I think this is going to be fantastic. 18/20 (JH) Inner quote mark (11/2014)
