Bricco Boschis leaps from the glass with a heady perfume of red and black fruits, accentuated by notes of tobacco, licorice and crushed rose petals. The warm midsummer gave rise to a depth of fruit that is expansive and generous but not cloying. The initial ripe fruit is supported by layers of spice, tar and mineral motes that give the wine structure and length.
"I had tasted this wine from barrel last year, and the wine was already shaping up beautifully back then. Staying the course, the 2015 Barolo Bricco Boschis shows extreme elegance and finesse. These are the characteristics of what is surely one of the most beautiful vineyard sites in Barolo. The Bricco Boschis cru affords a panoramic view onto much of the Langhe, with snowcapped Alps in the background. Barolo from Castiglione Falletto tends to show characteristics that are very fine, precise and linear. That's fundamentally what you get here despite the more exuberant and fleshy 2015 vintage. This wine is truly beautiful." 96 points(2015 vintage), Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Aromas of leather, forest floor, mature black-skinned berry, graphite and pipe tobacco form the nose on this classic expression of Barolo. On the structured, delicious palate, taut, polished tannins support juicy Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice and menthol, while fresh acidity keeps it balanced. It closes on a note of brown spice. Best 2020–2030." 96 points (2015 vintage), Wine Enthusiast
"Mint, eucalyptus, cherry, plum and licorice notes mark this savory style of Barolo. Dense tannins pave the way for a long finish that echoes the cherry flavors and adds mineral and tobacco elements. Still a little rigid on the finish, yet shows fine balance overall. Best from 2023 through 2040." 94 points (2015 vintage), Wine Spectator
"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." 99 points (2016 vintage), #10 Top 100 Cellar Selections 2020, Wine Enthusiast
