Tasting Notes:
The mineral composition of the porphyry soil together with the characteristics of the Nebbiolo grapes create in “Boca” a full expressive wine.  Flavors are reminiscent of well-matured wood berries, tobacco and leather with hints of balsamic and citrus fruits.  Power and silky elegance develop in the mouth which plays with a slightly noble-bitter finish.
