Not yet rated but here is a review of the 2019, also from a very good vintage:

91 points Wine Advocate
The organic Cavallotto 2019 Barbera d'Alba Superiore Vigna Cuculo is ripe and opulent with thick layers of dark fruit and blackberry. There is attractive softness here, contrasted against bright acidity. The wine's strongest cards have to do with texture, plumpness and the irresistible drinking style that a cheerful and informal wine like this can bring to the table. Production is 6,720 bottles.

Alfio Cavallotto and his family have farmed organically since 1976. In 2008, they started to reduce the use of copper, finally eliminating it by 2013, thereby cleaning the soils of metal buildup. These are excellent wines from a unique position. Bricco Boschis is located at the center of the Barolo growing region, and it links the eastern part of the appellation (Serralunga d'Alba and Monforte d'Alba) to the western side (where La Morra and Barolo are found).
