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

Situated in the north-western part of Italy, the region of Piedmont is known worldwide and is highly respected for the quality of the wines produced there. Many of the most successful sub-regions in Piedmont produce many of the world's finest red wines, such as those made from the excellent Nebbiolo grape varietal in areas such as Barolo and Barbaresco. However, the historic wineries which typify this region use a relatively wide variety of grapes, including Dolcetto and Barbera for their red wines, which are typically aged and have a delightful velvety character. Piedmont isn't all about beautifully complex red wines, though, as it is also famed for high quality, elegant sparkling wines, notably the Asti wines made with the white Moscato grape. The region benefits from a range of terroirs which are often well expressed in the sparkling wines, and a wonderfully consistent climate ideal for vineyard cultivation.

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
