The 2004 Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppe comes across as decidedly powerful and broad-shouldered next to the Vignolo. A wall of massive tannins makes it hard to see through to the wine's potential but with air the multiple dimensions of its personality begin to open up. Dark fruit tar mint pine and a host of other spiced balsamic aromas and flavors make an appearance on the large-scaled dramatic finish. The 2004 San Giuseppe is an utterly mind-blowing dramatic Barolo from Cavallotto. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2034. -Antonio Galloni

A huge, brooding Barolo, the 2004 Riserva Bricco Boschis San Giuseppe needs another 5-10 years in bottle before it starts drinking well, but I imagine it will remain a brute for quite some time beyond that. Today, the 2004 is virile, massively tannic and imposing. Game, smoke, savory herbs, scorched earth and graphite add to a sense of gravitas as this dark, ample Barolo shows off its personality. The searing tannin and backward expression are reminiscent of a Serralunga Barolo. Patience will be essential here.

This bears the textbook flavor profile of tar and roses backed by some gripping tannins. A big wine powerful and intense this grabs your attention with its long aftertaste of tobacco spice and mineral. It still has some way to go before the tannins soften. Best from 2013 through 2028. -BS

Here's a vineyard-designate Barolo Riserva with pristine aromas of cherry wild berry smoke tar licorice and leather.
