Winemaker Notes

Star-bright, almost impenetrable ruby. Textbook nose of bueberry, tobacco and liquorice aromatics. Harmonious and well-structured, unfolding to a long, juicy finale.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Dolcetto Dogliani Vigna dei Prey is one of the most muscular, dense wines of the vintage. Masses of dark fruit saturate the palate in a rich, full-bodied style. This, too, shows impeccable overall balance, not to mention tons of personality. Smoke, tar, licorice are among the nuances that confer darkness and sense of mystery to this brooding, imposing Dolcetto. It is another winner from Boschis. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2015.

In the little-visited township of Dogliani (located a few kilometers south of Barolo), Dolcetto is king. Nebbiolo is not suited to the terrain, and few choose the challenge of making a living from Dolcetto and Barbera alone.

The Boschis family has been producing wine on their family property since 1919, but only began bottling their own juice in 1968. Plantings are at 1800 feet high, about 650-1000 feet higher than those in Barolo and Barbaresco, resulting in a powerfully enhanced bouquet; old vines (40-60 years) result in richly complex and ageworthy wines.

Attracting the most glory, prestige and fame to the Piedmont region, Nebbiolo in all of its expressions—Barolo, Barbaresco, Roero, Ghemme and Gattinara—creates a complex wine, truly unique for its delicate qualities combined with strength and a great potential to improve over time.

But Nebbiolo isn’t all there is to red wine from Piedmont! Barbera is the most planted variety and historically most popular as a dependable, food-friendly, everyday wine.

Beyond these two, a surprising number of red varieties call Piedmont their home. Worth a try include Dolcetto for its bold concentration and aromas of spice cake. Other grapes to investigate include Freisa, Croatina, Brachetto, Grignolino and Pelaverga.
