Difficult year with a lot of rain in spring, followed by a hot August and nice September which matured the grape well. Harvest was compromised by some rains but with selection we could do small amounts of Boca of very high quality, full of elegance and very fine and complex. It reminds us the outstanding vintage 2008 with big structure, power and deep and complex aromatics. This wine should sit in the cellar for long years and in the official market, we only will release it in 2019.
Consists of Nebbiolo (85%) and Vespolina grapes. This wine requires full maturity and is treated in the barrel for 3 to 4 years, and can then be stored for decades. The mineral composition of the porphyritic soil together with the characteristic structures of the Nebbiolo grapes allow “Boca” to become a full, expressive wine. Its flavour reminds one of well-matured forest fruits, violets, tobacco and dried herbs with hints of balsam and citrus fruits. Power and a silky elegance will develop in the mouth, fascinating and playful, with a slightly noble and bitter final note. The vast complexity of taste allows one to discover new facets over and over again. Our Boca can mature and refine in bottles for up to 10-20 years.
