The BOCA is a DOC wine that is produced, by law, only in the province of Novara, more precisely in the municipality of Boca, Maggiora, Cavallirio, Prato Sesia and Grignasco; for a total of just 700 hectares of vineyards.

Here vines are rooted in a rocky and rugged terrain, of volcanic origin, which has been able to give its grapes that saline wealth that makes the BOCA a particular wine unique. The vines, in turn, have mitigated the harshness of the landscape giving it an almost Mediterranean, because of the cultivation in terraces and those characteristic local stone walls scattered among the pathways system.

The BOCA born from the vinification of Nebbiolo, Bonarda Novarese, Vespolina and Uva Rara and the placing on the market, must meet specific characteristics as indicated by the decree of July 18, 1969.

Must possess specific properties about: colour, bright ruby ​​red with hints of orange and the smell, a quaint and pleasant scent of violets, and flavour, fruity, dry, harmonious with pomegranate aftertaste.

The aging requires three years of which at least two in oak or chestnut, the wine is then stabilized and bottled.

Gary Walsh, The WineFront

Alpine herb, camphor and such ride high in the aromatics and flavour profile here, so you have to enjoy that, but under that there’s ripe cherry, raspberry, new leather, a beautiful brick dust tannin profile, firm almost glassy acidity, maybe some liquorice. Quite sappy and lively, with deep fruit to go. Finish is firm and long, bite of bitter herb in the aftertaste.
