I am on a personal crusade to encourage red wine lovers to drink young Barolo. Does Barolo age? Of course it does. Should Barolo only be drunk with a bunch of age? Of course not–and every restaurant in Barolo would be in trouble if that were the case because they primarily serve and sell young Barolo! This '17 is the perfect poster-wine for my crusade; it's a gorgeous wine with massive early appeal. And duh, it will age. Join my crusade–drink young Cavallotto! -Marcus
I love what Vinous founder Antonio Galloni had to say about this wine and topic: "The 2017 Barolo Bricco Boschis is superb. A rush of crushed raspberry, rose petals, mint, sweet spice and blood orange gives the 2017 its effusive, sexy personality. Medium in body and exceptionally polished, the 2017 is an absolute jewel of a wine. Many 2017s are nervy and in need of time to soften, but not the Bricco Boschis. All the elements are so well-balanced. If I was going to open a wine for someone who was not familiar with Barolo, I might very well open this. It’s impossible not to love the 2017 Bricco Boschis."
