Rated 92 by Wine Advocate
This is a real beauty, a wine that shows lots of dark fruit and concentration with blackberry, black cherry and plum. The Boschis Francesco 2018 Dogliani Superiore Pianezzo - Vigna dei Prey offers balanced and intense aromas, making for a great first impression. This wine is aged in stainless steel only. It invites a cheeseburger cooked rare with wedge fries, bacon and guacamole. There are dusty, salty notes at the back of all that black fruit. Exactly 2,666 bottles were made.

Varietal: Dolcetto

There are few grape varietals in the world which hold such intense and interesting flavors as the Dolcetto. These grapes have been grown for centuries in their native Italy, and have also had much success in the New World, where they are equally prized for their unique characteristics. These black grapes have the ability to produce strongly colored red wines, packed full of fascinating flavors which pair well with a wide variety of foods. Most commonly, Dolcetto varietal grapes produce wines which carry the flavors of liquorice, prune and black cherries, with a bitter finish reminiscent of almonds. They strong tannins and light acidity result in interesting wines which are at once large in the mouth, and yet relatively light and drinkable, perfect for those looking for something a little different from their red wines.

Region: Piedmont

n Italy, the region most closely associated with excellent quality red wines and characterful sparkling wines is Piedmont. This alpine region is located in the north-west of the country, and features beautiful foothills of the impressive mountain range which forms the nearby border between Italy, France and Switzerland. Wineries in Piedmont work with the Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera grapes which thrive in the warm, dry summers and cooler autumns, as well as the beautifully expressive Moscato grapes which are used for the sparkling Asti wines the region is famed for. For generations, these wineries have perfected the art of aging their red wines, and blending grape varietals to get the most out of each one, leading to a region known all over the world for the exceptional quality of its produce.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
