"Alfio Cavallotto is one of the most traditional producers in Langhe. His winemaking is not only classic but old-fashioned: indigenous yeast, oak fermentation, almost no temperature control, and long maceration with submerged cap. His wines are dark and concentrated and this 2019 is no different. Earthy and smoky, it has dark cherry and blood orange aromas alongside plenty of dried fruits. There's firm acidity to the fore, as well as firm tannins, with great mid-palate extraction. There's ome stickiness on the gums now so it comes across as very austere at the moment, but it's very good on the finish. This deserves more time in bottle and consumers who appreciate the style."

"Cask sample.Mid to deep ruby with orange tinges. Very compact nose of raspberry coulis with salty hints underneath. Very pretty, aromatic raspberry palate with firm, underlying tannins but this is still in cask and will need substantial time once this is in bottle. Energetic acidity tied to the fruit. Very complete and with an impressive, focused raspberry finish that can only be counted in light years. Very tannic at the moment. (WS)Drink 2026 † 2040"

"Rose, violet, new leather and forest floor are just some of the aromas you,ll find on Cavallotto,s excellent 2019 Bricco Boschis. Full-bodied and still youthfully austere, it shows great aging potential, delivering juicy red cherry, wild raspberry, star anise and tangy mineral notes suggesting rusty iron, all set against a backbone of tightly knit, fine-grained tannins. Bright acidity lends balance and great energy. Drink 2029†2049. Abv: 14.5% Kerin O,Keefe March 2023 'kerinokeefe"

"The 2019 Barolo Bricco Boschis is an absolutely gorgeous wine that needs plenty of air to open. Bright red-toned fruit, blood orange, rose petal, cinnamon, star anise and mint all grace this mid-weight, wonderfully expressive Barolo. It has been some years since I have tasted a Cavallotto Barolo with this kind of translucent old-school classicism."

"This estate is certainly the most prolific interpreter of the hilltop Bricco Boschis MGA in Castiglione Falletto. The Cavallotto 2019 Barolo Bricco Boschis (a certified organic wine) would benefit from more time in the bottle. I encountered many Barolos in 2019 that reveal a slightly reductive approach that bodes well for long cellaring. This wine is characterized by velvety black fruit that is framed by dusty nuances of crushed limestone. It builds focus and precision with more time in the glass. Some 18,800 bottles were released."

"Expressive and complex, offering cherry, raspberry, floral, iron, tar and eucalyptus aromas and flavors. Shows a silky texture and a vibrant, well-integrated structure. Harmonious overall, lingering with generous detail on the finish. Best from 2026 through 2045. 2,500 cases made, 750 cases imported."
