96 points Wine Enthusiast: "[$135 list] New leather, tilled earth, dark spice, underbrush and a balsamic note mingle together on this compelling red. The full-bodied palate evokes ripe black cherry, licorice, tobacco and crushed herb while youthfully assertive noble tannins provide the framework. Hold for even more complexity. Drink 2023-2036. Alcohol 14.5%. (Sep 2017)"
95 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "The Cavallotto 2011 Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppe is an exceptional wine that really shows the best of Castiglione Falletto, home to some of Barolo's most consistent and age-worthy wines. This bottle offers enormous complexity coupled by power and linear, classic lines. Maceration stopped at 20 days, otherwise the winemaking team feared the results would be overdone and too bold. The bouquet opens quickly to reveal dark fruit, spice, anise seed and licorice. The effect is ethereal and lasting. It would be hard to pin this wine down as being from the warm 2011 vintage in a blind tasting. The acidity is fresh and nicely folded into the background. Drink; 2018-2035. (Aug 2017)"
94 points Wine Spectator: "Balanced and expressive, this Barolo features maturing aromas and flavors of cherry, licorice, tobacco and mineral. Builds to a long, detailed aftertaste. Altogether savory and fresh. Best from 2020 through 2033. 1,500 cases made. (4/30/18)"
92 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "Cavallotto's 2011 Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppe is powerful and dense. The more roasted, ripe side of the year is very much in evidence. There is no shortage of richness to the black cherry, smoke, tobacco, menthol and licorice flavors. At times, though, the 2011 comes across as a bit heavy. I would have liked to see a little more freshness, although, admittedly, that was hard to come by in 2011. Drink: 2019-2033. (Oct 2017)"
