2003 Cavallotto Barolo Bricco Boschis
In short a very disappointing wine. I am glad I have kept my hands away from this 2003 vintage. The fruits are dark – even balsamic and plum infected, but yes there are some nebbiolo characters here. The taste is extremely polished, the wine is like a velvet glove, and I sensed no acidity backbone or good structural capacity for the future only a dull tannic picture.
