This famous Cru, one of Piedmont's best known vineyards drops away on the other side of the ridge to Claudio's Rocche di Castiglione vineyard. So it not only faces West but the soil is much heavier with clay and stones - so the wines from here offer a totally different expression. Famously, Cavalotto used to be the only producer of Barolo Bricco Boschis. Yet it is not a Monopole, much as they might like it to be! Others have parcels here, but mostly of Barbera or Dolcetto, and particularly down near the bottom of the big slope. Claudio continues to make his Barbera from his ancient parcels near the bottom - but has regrafted some of the better plots further up the slope to Nebbiolo and in 2014, to some consternation from his grandee neighbour, released his first Barolo Bricco Boschis. Totally different to the fruity ping of the Rocche di Castiglione. The nose here is loaded with savour - roasted meat, iodine, some evolved notes too - liquorice and balsamic season the dark berry fruit. This follows to the palate too - but there is a roundness to the texture an enveloping softness. Broad and open feel, with excellent push. So savoury it almost seems more evolved than the other wines, and this is certainly approachable now - but this brilliant wine will age too. Bricco Boschis not always so accessible, so young but as Claudio explains this is a very open style in 2015. A brilliant wine from this historic spot. L&S (Nov 2021)
