Azienda Agricola Boasso

Serralunga, Italy

The Boasso family’s cellar, in the tiny hamlet of Gabutti, lies just above the steep slope of their top vineyard, facing the little hilltop village of Serralunga across a deep valley.

"Pale garnet and a rather dusty nose with very fine tannins. Lots of bite, tang and life. Long and subtle. Still got a lot of maturing to do, but you could certainly enjoy it already with food. You could also enjoy it over several nights." 16.5+/20 Jancis Robinson, May 2021

From several of the Boasso family sites in the commune of Serralunga. This is currently absurdly young, but what promise! There's a little overt chocolatey oak apparent upfront, but on the palate this is so exciting, energetic and powerful; fat, savoury and tannic, with a liquorice twist. A total bargain given its potential - we have shipped a lot of this exciting Nebbiolo. Now -2027

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.
