Winemaker Notes

The esposition and soil composition endow this wine with both structure and tannins suitable for a long aging. The bouquet presents complex aromas of berry marmalade and brandied cherries, with detectable spicy notes.

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The Agostino Bosco 2016 Barolo La Serra draws its fruit from La Morra, a subzone known for its silky tannins and elegant Nebbiolo aromas. This wine shows those qualities very nicely, perhaps adding extra power and fruit definition that is characteristic of the 2016 growing season. I do notice that the tannic presence of the wine is well developed, suggesting that this vintage could use extra years in the cellar to better unwind and soften. Dark cherry fruit is followed by licorice, dried orange peel and pressed rose.

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

Intense aromas of rose petal, new leather and tobacco emerge from the glass. The taut balanced palate offers raspberry, sour cherry, toasted hazelnut and licorice alongside youthfully austere tannins and fresh acidity. Drink 2025–2033.

The farm was founded by Bosco Pietro (1904 – 1983).

The farm’s primary business has always been in wine-growing, with especial attention up until the 1970s to grape production. In 1979 the grapes so carefully grown were removed from the market to make room for wine-making, bringing to the market the wine that until then had been limited to family consumption. This new enterprise was met with so much success that Pietro was soon joined by his youngest son Agostino, who worked with patience and precision and was gifted with intuition for work in both the vineyard and the cellar.

After the death of his father (1983), Agostino continued working on the farm, demonstrating such commitment and love for the work as to involve his wife Carla and to find in the world of wine a passion for his son Andrea as well, who received a wine-making diploma at Alba’s Scuola Enologica and has dedicated his life to continual research and experimentation of the mysteries of this fascinating art. Today the farm continues to be run as a family business with one goal: achieve grapes of the maximum quality to be transformed into a wine with personality rendering it special and unique.

In March 2006 the extensions of the cellar structures was completed, increasing the underground aging area and the bottling area on the ground floor to 150m2 each, in addition to the construction of new tasting and office facilities.

The total vined surface area of the farm is currently at about 4 hectares divided between nebbiolo, barbera and dolcetto. All vineyards are property of and found exclusively within the confines of the Comune of La Morra.
