The 2011 vintage was a vintage of extremes; one that showed two radically different faces at different parts of the year. Until the 7 August, the vintage was cooler than normal with the exception of 5 days of heat at Easter which led to a very even bud break. After the 10th of August it was hot and dry thru October. Our Barolo Bricco Boschis shows the perfume and generosity of fruit & flowers (raspberries, cherries and roses) that come from the heat at the end of the season, but with a foundation of cool-vintage acid and tannins that give this wine both its structure and potential longevity. This is a wine that can be enjoyed earlier than other vintages, but has the complexity and structure to reward several years of cellaring. Long, dry and precisely focused finish. Notes on Matching with Food: The wine is best with second courses of red meat, simply grilled or roasted. Also good with hard and aged cheeses. It can also be enjoyed as a "vino da meditazione" (a wine for meditiation) by iteslf.

Wine Enthusiast"Cellar Selection" Dark berry, mint, menthol and a balsamic note are just some of the aromas you'll get on this gorgeous wine. The full-bodied palate delivers ripe black cherry, clove, ground pepper and anise alongside firm, refined tannins. Give it time to fully develop. Drink 2019-2026.

Wine SpectatorThis is elegant, exhibiting rose and cherry flavors, with hints of tar, earth and underbrush. The supple texture is offset by the fine grip of tannins. Fresh and youthful, presenting a lingering aftertaste of mineral. Best from 2018 through 2033. 2,000 cases made.
