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.

Azienda Agricola Boasso, Barbera d'Alba Superiore, 2018

"Superiore" may be added if the wine is aged for a year prior to release, of which at least four months must in barrel. At Boasso this wine gets ten months in the traditional very large Slavonian oak vats. Already this has the air of a fine wine - though it will also keep very well. Complex aromas of brambly fruit with a liquorice hint. Lots of flesh, with refined red berry and plum fruit. Highly aromatic: floral touches of pot-pourri and violets. Shows a typical Barbera structure based on acid rather than tannin. Long finish. It's a bargain at this price, for drinking now or laying down. Now-2024

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
