Made of 80% Nebbiolo and 20% Vespolinagrown in the North of Piedmont, Boca is an original expression of Nebbiolo. They are in Cavallirio, near Gattinaraand Ghemme, in a hilly area dominated by the view of Monte Rosa. In 1946, Mario Barbaglia, first on a bike, then with a small truck, took his wines door to door from Cavallirioto Valsesia, and then to the outskirts of Milan, eager to promote his homeland. This is Boca, the essence of Sergio Barbagliaand his daughter Silvia.
This Boca was grown on soils rich in minerals, where the porphyry rose dominate, giving the palate a distinct flavor and freshness and ensuring longevity. Its personality is overflowing and strong: Boca will delight you with its generosity, its freshness, and its unforgettable density and finesse, which only gets better over years. Opening up slowly. With a determined and noble heart, Boca has an austere, robust, and balanced palate. Enjoy this full-bodied wine with aged cheese, grilled red meats, wild game, or a plate of salumi.Combining finesse and structure, this impressive wine opens with
fantastic scents of new leather, woodland berry, baking spice and
balsamic notes, the enticing
palate doles out juicy black cherry, raspberry and white pepper framed
in firm refined tannins. An energizing mineral note carries the
lingering finish. Despite the warm vintage, it still boasts freshness.
Drink through 2026.
