2015 Bosco Agostino Barolo Neirane DOCG ~ Red Wine
100% Nebbiolo. A Cru of Verduno, bordering with La Morra. Southwest facing vineyard at an altitude of about 350 metres. Loose and sandy soils confer floral sensations of violet and red fruit, together with a distinct elegance.
Fermentation takes place 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 being transferred to 2000 litre Slavonian oak casks to age 23-24 months. It is then bottled in August and released the following March.

- 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 about 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.
