Barolo Riserva San Giuseppe 2015 is already quite mature and therefore pretty ready to drink. The thick structure is rather smooth and balanced. The warm weather that characterized this vintage shows itself in the floral notes but this wine seems to be fresh and intended to live for a very long time. The nose shows black cherries, licorice and truffle, with some more ethereal scents linked to the alcohol. The palate is quite round and open, although it is evident this is going to be a longevous wine. The finish is extremely long, sign of a great complexity despite the dry and hot vintage. The wine is best with second courses of red meat, simply grilled or roasted. Also good with hard and aged cheeses or it can be enjoyed by itself.

Aromas of underbrush, camphor, new leather and woodland berries mingle with a whiff of pressed rose petal on this compelling red. Still youthfully austere but already incredibly delicious, it delivers raspberry compote, truffle, tobacco and licorice framed in tightly knit, noble tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced. Another fantastic showing from this wonderful estate. Drink 2025-2040.

The 2015 Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppe is ripe with dried plum, saddle leather, crushed rock, and tar. Revealing a mineral-rich earth and full structure, with black tea, dried porcini, and cherry pit, it is warming with a wintery feel. This is a great one to lay down and check in on in 4-6 years. Drink 2025-2050.

Offers nice tension between the supple texture and firm structure. Shows cherry, currant and strawberry fruit flavors, with floral, mineral and tree bark accents. Balanced, delivering plenty of grip for future evolution. Best from 2024 through 2043. 1,500 cases made, 500 cases imported.

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.

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.
