Winemaker's Notes

The flagship of the estate, the Boca is 75% Nebbiolo, 20% Vespolina, and 5% Uva Rara. Spontaneous fermentation takes place in steel cuve and the three varieties are vinified separately. They are assembled prior to barrel aging, which lasts at three years in both 500L "botti" and a variety of larger formats, with no batonnage. No sulphur is added at any stage until a minimal dose at bottling. In 1996, the Conti sisters added the name ‘il rosso delle donne' to add their mark to the family tradition.

Critical Acclaim

"Conti's 2008 Boca Il Rosso delle Donne is simply striking. A big, full-bodied wine, the 2008 opens up with savory herbs, tar, anise, mint and the blackest of cherries. Dense and full-bodied on the palate, the 2008 has plenty of the aromatics that are typical of these wines, along with superb depth and fabulous persistence. There is more than enough structure to support years of exceptional drinking. This is a fabulous effort from Conti and a great example of Boca.

Learn About Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo(neh-bee-OH-low) The King of Piedmont Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines. Native to Piedmont, Nebbiolo is a bit of a soil snob - it's finicky about where it grows and has long been the honored red grape of Northern Italy...
