This is full of sweet, ripe plum, cherry, leather, soy and tobacco aromas and flavors, with smoky notes of autumn woods. Though firmly structured, there's energy here that carries through the long, detailed finish. Evokes both strength and elegance. Drink now through 2040. 1,500 cases made, 500 cases imported. — BS – Wine Spectator

Tank sample. NB vintage. Mid garnet. Very solid and concentrated, rather puts the 2014s tasted alongside in the shade. Complex, nuanced nose with no shortage of ripeness and lovely gentle texture and seriously interesting flavours. Already delivering a huge amount of pleasure. Great balance and concentration. Jancis Robinson

Here is another excellent rendition of the celebrated Bricco Boschis cru (one of the best performing vineyards in Castiglione Falletto) from the talented Cavallotto family. The 2012 Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppe sees fruit picked only from the central part of the vineyard parcel. This area suffers less stress during the hottest months of summer because it is more protected and isolated. This wine is the proverbial overachiever among this estate's new releases. The bouquet shows a highly refined and focused quality with extreme varietal precision. The 2012 vintage stands somewhere in between 2010 for its elegance and 2011 for its power. In fact, I tasted this wine next to the 2011 expression and found that the 2012 vintage plays its cards closer to its chest. It has a lot to give in the future as it continues down its evolutionary path. Patience is required. Savory spice and smoke make for an elegant twist on the finish. Monica Larner – The Wine Advocate

The 2012 Barolo Riserva San Giuseppe is a striking wine. Rose petal, mint, dried flowers and sweet red cherry fruit give the 2012 considerable brightness and floral lift, especially next to the 2013 tasted alongside it. Medium in body, with tons of supporting structure and energy, the 2012 impresses with its persistence, balance and classiness. More than anything else, though, the 2012 is not that far off the level of the 2013. It will drink well earlier and is also quite a bit less expensive. This classy, polished 2012 has so much to offer. Antonio Galloni – Vinous Media
