Cavallotto Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis 2006 Vigna San Giuseppe

One of my favorite “under the radar” (relatively) producers of fine Barolo. I had a few of these, and thought 12 years from the vintage would be a good time to check in on a bottle, especially with good news and a good hanger steak.

A little clearing at the rim, but not going to orange yet. Just from a look, this has lots of time left ahead. Classic flowers and earth and mulberry fruit nose.

Still grippy tannins around the edges, though I’ve had 06s this year that were more ferocious. Lush, brambly fruit in the middle. Over a couple of hours, open at the pour, taut for an hour, and then more generous again. Great intensity and freshness.

After checking in on a few traditional/hybrid 06s, these wines are good now, but will be better at 20 years.

Great from a Riedel Pinot Noir glass.

This is an awesome wine…loaded up on the 10’s as much as the budget could fit…thanks for sharing!

The 2001 is at least 10 years from drinking window
It tastes great nevertheless :slight_smile:

I have two 3 liter bottles. [wow.gif]

:astonished: Wow
Lucky you

They made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.

I have a 3L of the 2010, also after a very well priced offer. Storage is an issue…

Schneiders offer in January?

Looking forward to a side-by-side of this with Sandrone 06 - in about 10 years.

No, a local place in NYC.

I’ll bring a Riserva Vignolo
