Producer: Vallana  
Region: Piedmont, Italy  
Blend: 65%  Nebbiolo, 20% Vespolina, 15% Uva Rara 
Year: 2017 

Vinous, 91 Points 

"The 2017 Boca is an attractive, easygoing wine. The presence of 20% Vespolina and 15% Uva Rara adds a very pretty savory dimension to a core of Nebbiolo fruit. Sweet tobacco, cedar, dried herbs, mint and earthy notes develop with a bit of aeration. The 2017 is not terribly complex or structured, but it offers a very fine drinking today. It is a perfect restaurant wine in that sense. Drink: 2022-2030." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"Boca is a hidden jewel! If Gattinara is the King, Boca is the Queen. The best words to describe this wine are elegant, finessed and delicate. This is a true example that beauty in youth and elegance in age are not mutually exclusive. The Boca appellation is located near Ghemme and Gattinara in the Alto Piemonte. This unique wine shows the most elegant nose, with spicy and fruity notes and a silky smooth palate, long and persistent."
