Here's a cross the board selection from Christoph Kunzli's outstanding, vinously isolated and deliciously different estate in north-east Piedmont.
'This is simply a magical bottle. That's all there is to it.' says Antonio Galloni of the Boca 2011, lavishing 96 big points on it into the bargain. Made of 85% Nebbiolo and 15% Vespolina, this is the one that gives most of what you might expect from Piedmont, Maybe.
The Le Piane, on the other hand, is idiosyncrasy that proves how different Boca is to the rest of Piedmont. 90% Croatina with small amounts of Vespolina, Nebbiolo, Erbaluce and others.
And the charming plump blackcherry and spice Mimmo (70% Nebbiolo, 30% Croatina) is the one to drink whilst you're deciding when to broach the other two.L&S
