750 ml

100% Nebbiolo. A historical Cru of La Morra. The vineyard faces southeast at an altitude of about 400 metres and the soils are tuffaceous and calcareous providing this wine with structure and tannins suitable for long aging. Complex bouquets of berry jam and brandied cherries, with detectable spicy notes.

Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 28-30 °C. Maceration lasts 20-22 days. After racking, the wine is held at about 20°C for malolactic fermentation to take place. The wine is then placed in barriques and tonneaux for about 6-7 months before transferral to 2000 litre Slavonian oak casks to age 23-24 months. At the end of this period, it is bottled in August and released the following March.

A classic style Barolo.

  • About The Producer

Bosco Agostino estate was founded by Pietro Bosco. It is situated within La Morra, the very heart of the Barolo wine producing area. Piero was first involved in vine growing and grape production. In 1979 Pietro decided to dedicate himself entirely to winemaking. There are approximately 4 hectares of vineyards composed of nebbiolo, barbera and dolcetto. Nowadays, Pietro's son, Agostino carries on his father’s legacy by continuing to produce outstanding Barolo.
