The recent Barolo hot streak continues with Cavallotto, another great classic styled producer.  With the recent discovery of Fenocchio, I am adding Cavallotto to my short list of great traditional styled Barolo producers.  If the 2003 Bricco Boschis is any indication, these guys are doing all the right things.  There is no barrique signature here, and though it is a 2003 the wine shows excellent balance despite 14.5% ABV.  Wines are fermented in stainless steel and see approximately 20 days on the skins and are then aged in Slovanian oak of various sizes for up to three and a half years.  They have some great vineyard sites and a monople on Bricco Boschis in Castiglione Falletto (see map).  There is a nice range of wines from Cavallotto and I look forward to getting my hands on some more of their wines to complete the picture.

Cavallotto 2003 Bricco Boschis, Barolo ~$49.99

Classic Barolo nose.  Sanguine fruits, tar, red spice, and liquorish.  There are some tannins here and good grip, and I like it.  Purchased at Heights Chateau.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
