Colour: ruby red with garnet reflections in evolution with ageing.
Bouquet: ethereal, intense, floral and fruity with hints of rose and blackberry to which are added, with the evolution, spicy notes.
Taste: structured, elegant, reminiscent of the olfactory sensations and with a spicy mineral aftertaste. Tannins still crisp prelude to a slow evolution and extreme longevity.
Location: Barolo (Cuneo). This is the vineyard, the only one, that Sergio Gomba found in the company at the time of purchase in the summer of 1991. Estimated age: 70 years. Position: 300 m. a.s.l. facing south-west.
Soil: clayey with marl and limestone of the "Tortoniana" era, which traditionally gives rise to wines recognizable for their finesse, the elegance of their perfumes and their softness (however soft a Barolo may be).
Grape variety: 100% Nebbiolo, estimated age of about 70 years. Manual harvesting with rigorous selection of the bunches.
Pruning: Guyot. Density: 4,400 vines per hectare.
Vinification: soft pressing with destemming; fermentation at controlled temperature with maceration of 20-25 days with submerged cap. Slow maturation in Slavonian oak barrels and then in stainless steel. This is followed by a long aging in the bottle. 62 months after harvesting, it is ready for sale.
Food pairing: large meats, roasts, game, dishes with truffles, mature hard cheeses.
Note at the moment is the only Barolo Riserva with additional geographical mention "Boschetti".
Do you know Sergio Gomba? Perhaps, it is easier to know his wines.
To tell the story means to reveal the results of a lifetime work, tough and capable. A life spent, in the last 25 years, to cultivate a dream: the rebirth of Cascina Boschetti, just above the village of Barolo. Sergio Gomba’s work has turned the house and the vineyards into a beautiful estate in one of the most beautiful locations in the heart of the Barolo DOCG.
“The work has never scared me, even now that I have a certain age,” he says without em-phasis, this man of few words.
