Loads of plum, chocolate and spices on the nose here. Full-bodied, with supersoft tannins and a long, rich aftertaste. This gives you loads of everything in a reserved, determined way. Better than the 2000.
I would be hard-pressed to name another Barolo that delivers as much pure drinking pleasure at its price point than Cavallotto’s gorgeous 2001 Barolo Bricco Boschis. It is a muscular, structured wine with deeply expressive layers of tar, menthol, spice and dark cherry flavors that flow onto the palate with notable length and substance. The Bricco Boschis can sometimes be a bit rustic, but in 2001 Cavallotto has turned out a beautiful wine that bodes extremely well for the 2001 Riservas. In a recent blind tasting that included many of the region’s top single-vineyard bottlings this wine more than held its own. It is not to be missed. (RP)
Bright medium-deep red. Musky, nuanced nose combines raspberry, tobacco and flowers. Suave and creamy but light on its feet. A step up in intensity from the Vignolo, with showier, sweeter fruit. Strong acids contribute shape and grip
