WINE ADVOCATE 96 POINTS - "I had tasted this wine from barrel last year, and the wine was already shaping up beautifully back then. Staying the course, the 2015 Barolo Bricco Boschis shows extreme elegance and finesse. These are the characteristics of what is surely one of the most beautiful vineyard sites in Barolo. The Bricco Boschis cru affords a panoramic view onto much of the Langhe, with snowcapped Alps in the background. Barolo from Castiglione Falletto tends to show characteristics that are very fine, precise and linear. That's fundamentally what you get here despite the more exuberant and fleshy 2015 vintage. This wine is truly beautiful. Some 27,700 bottles were made."

CAVALLOTTO FAMILY NOTES - "The 2015 Barolo Bricco Boschis leaps from the glass with a heady perfume of red and black fruits, accentuated by notes of tobacco, licorice and crushed rose petals. The warm midsummer gave rise to a depth of fruit that is expansive and generous but not cloying. The initial ripe fruit is supported by layers of spice, tar and mineral notes that give the wine structure and length. Though young, this is a relatively approachable Barolo which will improve in the bottle over the next decade. "
