Cavalloto purchased their hilltop estate in Castiglione Falletto back in 1928 and was one of the first to be registered as Barolo. They are one of the original addresses still producing traditionally styled Barolo with impeccable attention to detail. The Vigna San Giuseppe is the top wine from Cavallotto and comes from a unique parcel within the Bricco Boschis vineyard. Cavalloto never uses chemicals in the vineyards and has a sustainable approach to their wine-growing process. This is Cavallotto's answer to the outstanding 2015 vintage, with the Vigna San Giuseppe seeing one of the most classic and impressive vintages to date. Always a riserva worth waiting for, the Vigna San Giuseppe is one of the leading Barolo wines that doesn't come with an astronomical price tag, and 2015 is not a bottle to miss for fans of the vintage, Cavallotto, and classic Barolo.
Antonio Galloni 96 points! "Cavallotto’s 2015 Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppe rounds out this trio of new releases. A big, strapping wine, the 2015 possesses remarkable intensity to match its classic, mid-weight frame. Like all of these Barolos, it seems to have less overt fruit and more classicism. Camphor, licorice, menthol, pine, underbrush and scorched earth all run through the 2015, a big, brawny Riserva that will delight for many years to come. The 2015 San Giuseppe is what Barolo is all about. It’s a must for Cavallotto fans."
Wine Advocate (Monica Larner) 96 points! "The flagship wine from the talented Cavallotto family, comprising 8,938 bottles and 666 magnums, the 2015 Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppe is still quite young but equally promising at its release. This is one of my favorite vineyard sites, and Castiglione Falletto, located at the center of the appellation, boasts prime positioning that unites the best qualities of its surroundings. Keeping in line with the vintage characteristics, the wine is generous in terms of aromas and fleshed out in terms of mouthfeel. There is plenty of red and purple fruit, and the wine gains complexity, thanks to pretty appearances of blue flower, spice, toast and powdery earth. The 2015 vintage is slightly softer and more accessible overall compared to the tightly knit 2013 and 2010 editions, two classic vintages for this Riserva."
