Cavallotto is on a roll with some very impressive new releases. The 2013 Barolo Bricco Boschis is a tremendous effort that has an edge on the excellent 2010 vintage in my view. The wine shows a beautifully exuberant but elegant bouquet with the ethereal and undertone fruit and spice aromas you get with Nebbiolo. Although the wine is never overdone, it does show silky persistence and a long finish that comes from the noble nature of the tannins and the wine's textural finesse. Yet, it is playfully deceiving in a way because behind that polished grace, it delivers impressive depth and power.

Vintage Characteristics: 2013 is a vintage of character. The cool, wet spring fully replenished the water tables from the drought-like conditions at the end of 2012. The cool growing season bade well for Nebbiolo, and we expect great Baroli from this vintage. However, the other varietals suffered a little in the cool late summer and early autumn temperatures.
