The Boca DOC wine is a rare Italian red wine. There are also only a few of wineries who produce wine under the Boca DOC label, a quality assurance received in 1969. So it must possess specific properties: a brilliant ruby red colour a characteristic and pleasant aromas of violets and sweet spices, and notes of pomegranates on the finish. Also It must be aged for 36 months, of which 24 must be spent in wood oak The wine-making zone covers only the municipality of Boca and part of the communes of Maggiora, Cavallirio, Prato Sesia and Grignasco in the province of Novara, in the Italian region Piedmont.
Grapes ripening at above 500 metres of altitude in rocky and acidic soils.
The 'Cru Adele' is the producer's premium release, with this wine and vintage offering outstanding cellaring potential.
All the liquorice and dried herb perfume over dark cherry, spice, leather and menthol. It’s concentrated, ripe strawberry and cherry, a cool ‘mineral’ feel through richness of fruit and spiced orange exotica. Tannin is dense and packed, almost a cocoa richness here, and a long and dry finish with cranberry freshness as it goes. Feels very long term. If you like your Alto wines, then this is a beauty.
Carlone’s 2016 Boca Adele takes all the elements of the house style and kicks them up a few notches. Bold and dramatic in the glass, the Adele is a total stunner. It needs time to soften, but all the signatures of a truly great wine come through loud and clear. Red cherry, plum, lavender, dried herbs and pomegranate all open up. The 2016 is a young wine that needs cellaring for its aromatics to develop, but it is so impressive. Drink 2024-2046
