Bosio 'Boschi dei Signori', Nebbiolo d'Alba DOC, Piedmont, Italy 2017

Regular price £13.99

Elegant introduction to one of the world's great grapes, Nebbiolo, long and refined

Cantine Bosio, founded in 1967 by Angela and Egidio, produced their first wine from vineyards nestled amongst the hills of Langhe. Today, the winery has expanded to work with a number of trusted local growers alongside their own vineyards. Wines are made from across the Langhe region, yet still vinified in small parcels to maximise quality. The wines display great varietal character while being made in a modern, accessible style. The Bosio wines are some of the best value from Piemonte.

The vineyards are located in the Alba region on clay-limestone soils.

A warm vinification on skins for 10 days is followed by 2 years ageing in oak barrel plus several months in bottle prior to release.

Tasting Note: Offers up generous fruit along with menthol, spices and hard candy, showing notable intensity while retaining an essentially mid-weight style. Round, suave tannins add to the long and refined finish.
