The fruit for this flagship Riserva derives from the small sub-terroir of the Bricco Boschis known as Vigna San Giuseppe. A steep slope that sits behind the cantina, this 2.38-hectare parcel has long been considered the sweet spot for this vineyard, consistently delivering one of the greatest Barolos of the region.
Here you get the best of everything: altitude (but not too much); excellent drainage (but enough water retention thanks to the limestone and clay, ensuring the vines don’t stress in dry conditions); and a complex mixture of soils, including blue tinted clays (for power), limestone (freshness and mineral drive) and sand (prettiness and perfume). Add to this the sixty-year-old vines, quality clonal material and southwest exposure, and the stars are aligned to produce something great.
The 2016 saw 28 days on skins followed by five years in large cask. It’s a powerful yet classic Barolo that needs time to blossom—but greatness is guaranteed.
