The 2001 Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppe is captivating. Made in a dark brooding style it reveals a deeply layered personality that marries richness to depth with generous tar smoke menthol spices and sweet black cherries. As expected it comes across as much more powerful and structured than the 2001 Vignolo tasted alongside it. Still an infant the 2001 Vigna San Giuseppe is a wine to buy and forget about for several years if not considerably longer. It may very well be the finest Barolo Cavallotto has ever made and it is not to be missed. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2026.Cavallotto is one of the hidden gems of Piedmont. Based in Castiglione Falletto this traditionally-minded estate continues to build on the success of past vintages with a very strong set of wines. This year's releases include the 2003 Barolo Bricco Boschis and the 2001 Barolo Riservas all of which merit careful consideration.
