Professional Wine Reviews for F. Boschis Dolcetto Di Dogliani Vigna Dei Prey 2016

Rated 93 by Vinous Media
The highlight in this range from Boschis, the 2016 Dogliani Superiore Vigna dei Prey is laced with the essence of blackberry jam, black cherry, licorice, graphite, cloves, menthol and new leather. Dark, powerful and sumptuous, the Vigna dei Prey shows off the richer side of Dolcetto to great effect. But what I love most about the Vigna dei Prey is its ability to be unapologetically flamboyant and yet not at all overdone. There is so much to love in the 2016.
Winery
Violets, lavender, rose petals, mint, spices and crushed rocks all jump from the glass in the 2012 Dogliani Vigna del Prey. Blue and black fruits, spices, new leather, menthol and tar develop later as the flavors built to a crescendo of pure intensity that takes over all the senses. The graphite and mineral-drenched finish is a thing of beauty. (Galloni)

Winery F. Boschis

Region: Piedmont

The beautiful region of Piedmont in the north west of Italy is responsible for producing many of Europe's finest red wines. Famous appellations such as Barolo and Barbaresco are the envy of wine-makers all over the world, and attract plenty of tourism as a result of their traditional techniques and the stunning setting they lie in. The region has a similar summer climate to nearby French regions such as Bordeaux, but the rest of their year is considerably colder, and far drier as a result of the rain shadow cast by the Alps. The wineries which cover much of Piedmont have, over many generations, mastered how to make the most of the Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera grapes which thrive here, and nowadays are beginning to experimenting with many imported varietals to increase the region's range and meet international demand.

Country: Italy

There are few countries in the world with a viticultural history as long or as illustrious as that claimed by Italy. Grapes were first being grown and cultivated on Italian soil several thousand years ago by the Greeks and the Pheonicians, who named Italy 'Oenotria' – the land of wines – so impressed were they with the climate and the suitability of the soil for wine production. Of course, it was the rise of the Roman Empire which had the most lasting influence on wine production in Italy, and their influence can still be felt today, as much of the riches of the empire came about through their enthusiasm for producing wines and exporting it to neighbouring countries. Since those times, a vast amount of Italian land has remained primarily for vine cultivation, and thousands of wineries can be found throughout the entire length and breadth of this beautiful country, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine and benefiting from the excellent fertile soils found there. Italy remains very much a 'land of wines', and one could not imagine this country, its landscape and culture, without it.
