Opened several hours prior to service and poured into a ship’s decanter. The 1967 “Riserva” pours a ruddy garnet color with a transparent core and a slightly orange-ish rim. Medium viscosity with no staining of the tears. Some slight signs of fine sediment. On the nose, the wine is vinous but the fruit is still showing so well! A mix of ripe and desiccated red and dark fruits with forest floor, porcini, dried roses, tar, some tobacco, dried herbs, dusty earth and exotic spices. On the palate, the wine is dry; medium+ tannins and medium+ acid. Confirming the notes from the nose. The finish is long a slightly savory. This is drinking so well right now and I reckon it’s on a plateau of pleasure. It almost seems evergreen considering its vigor. Drink now because you’ve already waited long enough! — 23 days ago

Cherry and strawberry fruit, with roses, tar and white pepper. — 19 days ago
Rich, elegant, smoky, anise notes, ripe black fruits, medium + body, lingers with supple tanins that reach out and grip here and there. Wish the bottle was larger.
Enjoyed with a Dijon Rosemary crusted rack of lamb. Perfect. — 23 days ago
The 2019 Barolo Bricco Boschis is an absolutely gorgeous wine that needs plenty of air to open. Bright red-toned fruit, blood orange, rose petal, cinnamon, star anise and mint all grace this mid-weight, wonderfully expressive Barolo. It has been some years since I have tasted a Cavallotto Barolo with this kind of translucent old-school classicism. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, November 2023)

Hints of hazelnut and mint. Strong aroma that reminds one of truffles. Definitely made from grapes grown in soils with 42% porosity and a medium moisture content, presence of cracked limestone below the soils can be tasted in the aftertaste. It does not taste like grape juice…… in other words my son who wrote this review is a geologist and likes spending his father’s money buying nice wine — 6 days ago

On the nose the is strawberry, cherry, rose, graphite, balsamic, mint and pepper.
