#10 Wine Enthusiast's Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2020

Aromas of woodland berry, underbrush, hazelnut and camphor form the nose along with a whiff of rose petal in this captivating, delicious wine. The full-bodied, structured palate is still young and primary but already shows raspberry compote, ripe Marasca cherry, star anise, tobacco and the barest hint of game. Tightly knit, noble tannins and fresh acidity provide the firm frame and impart serious aging potential. Hold for even more complexity. Drink 2026–2056. KERIN O’KEEFE

All of these wines from Cavallotto deliver a very floral and perfumed subtext that gives lift and delicate buoyancy to the overall bouquet. This is the Castiglione Falletto magic that shows so well in this classic vintage. The 2016 Barolo Bricco Boschis offers dried cherry, sandalwood, bramble and forest floor. The wine reveals a slightly wild and untamed character that adds to its interest and personality. Overall, this is an elegant wine with a streamlined and elegant finish. The aromas are focused and bright. I can't wait to taste the Riserva expression from this site when it is released in three years' time. Monica Larner – The Wine Advocate

The core of cherry and currant is framed by notes of hay, eucalyptus and wild thyme, with a solid structure that leaves a dusty feel, offset by the sweet, ripe fruit. Balanced overall, this is built for the long haul. Best from 2023 through 2045. - Bruce Sanderson, Wine Specator

Castiglione Falletto. Tasted blind. Mid ruby. Deep balsamic nose, and really complex but still quite subdued at the same time. Hint of Moroccan leather. Brooding, sour-cherry fruit with plenty of concentration. Very slow to unfurl. Lots of sandy tannins and acidity cutting through the concentrated fruit. Slow burner.
