2018 Luca Bosio Barbaresco D.O.C.G
Red Wine from Piedmont, Italy
Garnet red in color, this Nebbiolo shows floral aromas typical of the grape when young, together with chocolate, toast and spicy notes from its time in oak. It has great structure and big tannins but, thanks to the amount of aging, the wine is smooth and its structure matches perfectly with its intense aromas and flavors.
Wine Style: Red Wine
Winemaker: Luca Bosio
Third-generation winemaker Luca Bosio tends the 60-acre estate in the Langhe district of Italy’s Piedmont region, purchased by his grandparents in 1967. Raised among the vines and following his studies in oenology at the fabled University of Turin, Luca developed theories on the best ways to preserve the aroma and structure of wines as diverse as Moscato and Barolo.
