14% abv

Vol- 75cl

Boca is a little-known wine produced in a very tiny area of Alto Piemonte. (85% Nebbiolo 15% Vespolina) Boca and is on the Eastern side of the River Sesia and is slightly more sheltered from the north and tends to picked slightly later than surrounding comunes that, offering a little more subtilty in the finished style. At 450-500 meters above sea level, Boca is the highest winegrowing region in Piemonte, with ancient volcanic soils that date back to the formation of the Alps. The vineyards are shaped in a natural amphitheatre and was granted DOC status in 1969. The inclusion of Vespolina in the blend acts as a foil, softening the structure and power of the Nebbiolo. Vinified in large cement tanks, matured for a minimum of 18 months to 2 years in 500L oak and with a minimum of 1 year in bottle before release.
