About Cavallotto 2013 Barolo Riserva, San Giusepe

Cavallotto Winery lies in the heart of the Barolo Zone, on the slopes of the Bricco Boschis, with 60 acres of land. Today the 4th generation continues to exclusively vinify grapes grown in their estate vineyards.

This Barolo Riserva is produced with grapes from their own "San Giuseppe" parcel within the Bricco Boschis vineyard. 100% Nebbiolo grapes are destemmed and fermented with indigenous yeasts. Maceration lasts 30-35 days and aging  48-60 months in Slavonian oak casks of 20-30-50-80-100 hectoliters in size. Once bottled the wine ages an addition 12 months before release.  

The Wine Advocate scored this 99 points saying "The Cavallotto 2013 Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppe feels magically cool even as the wine warms in the glass. Eucalyptus, menthol and medicinal herbs rise from the bouquet, with dark fruit and savory spice in tow. When you first open the bottle, it shows a distinct mineral character with crushed aspirin, limestone and graphite. I opened a second bottle a few days before this tasting and had both bottles side by side to compare. Both showed impressive results with a pristine level of focus, sharpness and linearity. With aeration, those dark fruit nuances come to the forefront, showing dried cherry, plum and candied orange peel. A few hours later, you pick up on leather, tobacco and cedar wood. This is a fluid and ever-changing wine that is well worth adding to your cellar selection. What a beauty." 

Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this  a perfect 100 points saying "A dazzling showing that combines Old School structure with finesse, this stunning red offers sublime aromas of rose, camphor, dark-skinned berry and new leather. Full bodied and delicious, the compelling palate delivers fruit purity and complexity, featuring ripe Marasca cherry, raspberry compote, star anise and tobacco. A backbone of noble tannins and vibrant acidity keeps it impeccably balanced. 2025–2053." Extremely Limited!
