Langhe Nebbiolo, ‘Bricco Boschis’, Cavallotto

100% Nebbiolo from Bricco Boschis (including Vignolo and San Giuseppe), harvested during the second week of October.  The grapes were fully de-stemmed.  Fermentation with indigenous yeasts in the traditional style – with a semi-submerged cap using punchdowns and pumpovers for 18-30 days. Malolactic fermentation in cement tanks during the spring following the harvest.  Cask aged for 18 months in Slavonian oak botti.  Bottled in late 2015 and released only after 6 months of bottle age.

Review:
The 2012 Langhe Nebbiolo shows great character and great fruit intensity. If you are curious about the quality of Nebbiolo fruit in 2012 (for next year's Barolo), this wine offers great perspective. Sweet cherry and wild herbs merge with vitality and force. The wine is silky and clean with bright menthol endnotes to keep it lively. This Langhe Nebbiolo sees a simple, non-interventionists' regime of 18 months in large Slavonian oak cask.

Review:
A mix of sweet floral, cherry and strawberry flavors is offset by tobacco and underbrush notes in this firm, athletic red. Fresh and chalky on the long finish.
